Funeral Poems For A Sailor: "CRUISING THE SUPERNOVA"





The sailor cast off the mortal coil

As the voyage of a lifetime was hatched

And the astral yacht blew off the Beaufort scale

At a speed no lifeboat could match


With star boards current in every direction

And solar winds blowing sternly on the face

The sailor waved and bowed to mother earth

Before joining a round the universe race
