The Lark In the Dark

Sammy went out on a lark
sailing his boat in the dark
and while he got drunk
his little boat sunk
so his hangover went to the shark

Octopus Limerick

A sailor one day, while out sailing
Thought he heard someone screaming and wailing
The source of the shout 
As he later found out
Was an octopus tied to the railing

There was a CEO with but one failing
He drank himself sloppy when sailing.
He had three shots at dawn
And drank the whole day long.
Cleaning his yacht took hours of bailing.

Bye, Bye, Vi

An eccentric young lady named Vi
Got it into her head she could fly.
So, in spite of her shrink,
With a nod and a wink,
She went sailing away through the sky.

Black Fifty, Most Nifty

We raise our glasses while waving the black flag
to friends sailing through the mid-century drag.
When embracing Kathy and Ginny
we will concede to know the skinny
since passions rise steady while body parts sag.

Charlie, the Tuna

There once was an unusual tuna
Charlie dreamed of sailing to the luna
   Bought a huge water balloon
   But along came a typhoon
Farewell Charlie, wannabe Kahuna

There once was a man with no dread.
He sailed an infant over head.
     All glee with “coo” mouth.
     A spew — it went South.
A wash - on the tongue it did spread.

Smooth Sailing

A little yacht it was painted blue
Slowly sailed by and came in view
Of people sitting by a lake
Eating sandwiches and fancy cake
What a leisurely thing to do

Short Form Jedi

Hilarious up to the end,
the witty, short verses he penned.
And his limerick score?
Fifteen hundred or more…
Aloha, smooth sailing, my friend!

Has Anyone Seen Sam's Toupee

Poor Sam is sans his beloved toupee

   It was snatched from his scalp one windy day

      'Twas last seen sailing o'er town

         Sam trying to coax it down

            If found call Sam - a bounty he will pay

Young Connor he voyaged The Nile
By sailing a live crocodile
The beastie went SNAP!
And swallowed the chap!
Oh well, it was fun for a while.

So Smoothly Surely Started Sailing

So Smoothly Surely Started Sailing

So smoothly we seemed to start out sailing;
From storm, took on water and were failing;
Wild are waves;
To were slaves;
Then out from our boat we had to be bailing.

Difficult Situations To See Happen

It's not simple to find a train at sea
or eye planes climbing on the trees
 never got to sight ox fly
fish swimming in river dry
 boats travelling rails sailing free

Not So Smooth Sailing For S Stallone

There was a man named SStallone;
Who used to fly his drone;
But during a break, 
 he made a mistake;
What a terrible day to crash and not fly or flown;

Kickapoo Juice

That first sip of kickapoo juice to start the morn The old ship starts a-sailing, taking off from home port Even still tied to the quay No stopping me, it's out to sea Dragging the pier with me, our minds we transport

Start Sailing Slower and More

Start Sailing Slower Surely Soon

Should start sailing slower surely soon;
Mind melded making magnificent moon;
Chanted charade;
Constant cavalcade;
Then think that tremendous turned the tune.

You can turn into all sorts of things
that will include a tremendous tune.

Santa Sailing Out To Sea

Santa Sailing Out To Sea

While Santa is sailing out to sea,
On a cruise, my wife is mad at me;
Does have desire,
Wants to inspire;
Not home, but sea would rather be.

Palindrome Paddle

'Oh WOW, it was ever so cheap,'
she shouted when taking a PEEP.
'This KAYAK is cool.
My MOM is a fool -
at NOON she was sailing a sheep.'
