The Whale

It's a short poem about a ship that was thought to be mighty, but capsized because it was built too heavy and unstable.

It was a mighty ship

consumed by the waters

yet it never sailed

its stunned crew only bailed

appalled questions came

how could our mighty beast be tamed?

thirty two cannons on both sides!

a hull to brave the worst of tides!

but its captain replied

nay I say

its body lopsided

its hull too thick

ordered to seize the sea crown

the beast list

and came down

like an iron fist

The End
