Siren Call

What better capture's a boy's mind
Than tales of the sea, of places far:
Spellbound, rapt, caught in a bind
By all you'd seen, and heard old tar;
Spinning tales, a seer to the blind,
Our own Ancient Mariner for an hour.

Always immaculate, dashing and tall,
Always the officer, cuffed and neat,
Always quick, forever on the ball,
Never a crease, or unironed pleat;
Ever the wry smile, the humour droll
Pride of his family, friends and fleet.

Farewell our friend your peace is made,
Rest old wanderer; no longer roam.
That old worn ship has anchor weighed
Left it's demesne of wave and foam
Old sailor your final salary's been paid:
The sea's Siren song has called you home.

Lovely tribute Saturn, he would have been very proud i'm sure.
That I might drink, and leave the world unseen.
