Thoughts and Dreams

 Thoughts and Dreams

By: Garland Davis


Where ever sailors and whores congregate,

To drink a few and tell tales tall and straight,

Wet the thirst and climb the stairs,

Back to the beer and finally the sleep,

Late in the night when the lights are out,

We sail on the morrow at the end of the neap.


Whenever the masts cry aloud in the gale,

And the decks are washed stem to stern,

Sea anchor out and a lonely staysail,

Six weeks in this North Atlantic hell,

A sailor’s thoughts and dreams go to,

Where ever sailors and whores congregate.
