We been a heavin' on tha bosom 0' tha ocean and a restin' to tha caress 0' tha wave for many a day now. This sure sounds like our bones been gettin' a treat, but take it from your grand­pop, they're beginnin' to jab through tha sides 0' my hide so I'm startin' to look like a pin cushion at a quiltin' bee. When it's blowin' ya gotta be grab­bin' handfuls 0' support or you'll be headin' for Davey's locker without runnin' through tha scupper. A body's gotta dig in with his toe nails and hang on so he can close his peepers for forty winks. When tha sea gets a rollin' she'll dump a body in a heap, so you gotta brace your­self. I got ' em there, Sal. For once my shapely legs been doin' double duty. Tha bow in ' em gives a body a sort 0' natural brace in tha bunk, and even if I gotta get out 0' bed to turn over, I been restin' flatter'n tha welcome on our old door mat after tha yearly convention 0' Ma's rela­tions. ' Tis not the life 0' Riley, but rather tha odor 0' spoiled fish at times. We took a passel 0' new recruits, known as ' boots' to us sailormen,' aboard our merry ship before we let go tha buoy back there at tha city 0' beach. A feelin' hale and hearty and a scamp­erin' around like lambs at play, tha new ones began to show strange signs not in keepin' with their spirits when messes 0' water started a pound­in' tha weepin' metal 0' tha ship. Could a sworn I saw tha lot 0' them a lookin' mighty discomfitted and a gaspin' worse'n a sick carp out 0' his element. Back there on tha fan tail, it seems they was a prayin' to tha gods 0' tha sea 0' briny Neptune, cause they sure blessed tha waters with food. Love, Gus Ode To The Cruise-- Or Some­thing ... I saw the fleet go sailing, A bustling out to sea, And, oh! but it made me lonely For a sailor-- or maybe three. I thought, e'en the " Village Smithy" Had his stance and his " spreading tree," And the sailors have their " dooty" But what is left for me! My name's Maude- but not Muller And it's a fine and summery day; For diversion I'd e'en rake a meadow But the cruise has my hay- hay! That makes me think of the " Hes­perus" And I quickly breath a prayer, ' Cause how would I know the fleet was wrecked With me here and it way out there. I murmur, ' the name's not Lafayette, But Big Boy, I'm really here!' Neither can I rejoice like Lafayette With no liberty boats at the pier. Ah, my Romeo, fair Romeo.... Does an " address book" aid thy cruise? If it does! Blow on thou winds of the rolling sea, While I'm pining- I'll take a snooze. Ah, sweet mystery of life ... It's an oft repeated tale. This is the thing that bothers me: Will I get a note in the mail ? Now I have learned from Byron Of the sea and the dove in its flight; But I don't care about Byron- he's dead. Gosh! I want my sailor tonight! * * * * This is nonsense, pure, and certainly simple, But I've comfort from one famous pen- He said, " At times pure nonsense Is relished by the wisest of men." By Annie Nonymous. This poem was received by the Edi­tor from a young lady of Long Beach with the request that it be published in our ship's paper. We have taken the liberty of changing a word here and there but it remains essentially the same as written. We also think the title should have been " A Lady's La­ment." Orchids to one who waits with a sense of humor. ...... Boatswain's Mate: " What's the mat­ter with you?" McCormak: " I've a bad nose bleed." Bo's'un's Mate: " You're not much of a shipfitter if you can't fix a leak in your own face."
