Ahoy! Ahoy I say!
is anyone aboard this creaking hulk?

permission to come aboard 

check your cargo manifest

looks mighty dangerous to me

are you drifting and derelict 

at the mercy of the winds and waves

too many dives, too much rum

too many voyages that ended up ‘on the rocks’

were you asleep at the wheel?

not on the bridge when needed

I’m telling you now Captain 

you better stoke your fires

get some steam up

set the engines at full speed

read your sea charts and captain’s maps

get your ship back on course

set sail for port while you still can

fix your longitude - adjust your latitude

correct your attitude

unless you want to wind up lost at sea

or before a court of inquiry 

that might not be sympathetic to your plight
