written by Lucas G. Irwin

In life there is but ship and sea,

a relationship bounding world and me.

Some days are calm and certain, you see;

yet others bring bedlam and chaos to thee.

Full command of the ship is a mere fantasy,

for the blue is too mighty and the boat would agree.

Once a wave sets its course, it’s intent set in motion,

it hammers forward with relentless devotion.

Many, NOT I, find this a dispiriting notion

For the world is the ship and

I am the ocean.
