In the Gravy

The sea was unusually wavy,
When a cook in the Royal Navy,
With a roll of the ship,
Accidentally slipped,
Inundating his captain with gravy.

Charlie's New Ballad - No More Chicken of the Sea

The lawsuit by StarKist is valid.
Their long time promoter’s new ballad
warns fish to stay clear
of fisherman’s pier,
or end up in somebody’s salad!

Problem Solving

What can two hydrogen; one oxygen be,
here’s a really good hint, it makes up the sea.
so now we should know,
water is H2O.
Now let us work this out; what is K9P?

Drunk Pirates Don'T Do Poetry

Who be th' stenchin' verminous Horsman 
what hollers t' th' seafarin' oarsmen 
when th' mind's a-fog
where we fest th' grog 
why be d'mandin' pennin's of  bay men 

***All errors are intentional and used merely to facilitate pirate speak.

Pasta, Pasta, Everywhere

Oh, vermicelli, rigatoni!
Lost on a sea of minestrone
The sea beneath my feet,
And nothing else to eat,                     
I live on cheese and macaroni.

Shark Tale

shark tale

I once enjoyed a movie on a shark.
His bite much bigger than a dogs bark.
In the ocean JAWS scared more than fish.
A bite so deep no one could stitch.
With teeth so sharp, always leaving a mark..

A young man shipped out on the sea;
No care if ‘twas windward or lee.
	But storms came along,
	His stomach not strong,
Now sees ships only on TV!

Avoiding Amputation

I watched the sailfish spring from the sea

Had no wings, an enigma to me

     Why in flight did it embark?
     Pursuit by a great white shark

Its sail would soon be an amputee

Fish Tail

A fat bluefin tuna down deep
Was fished out one night when asleep
He was looking quite pale
Had escaped a big whale
To be Sushi for one Meryl Streep

Brody and Quint

This old sea-rig is swamped and don't float
I TOLD you we'd need a bigger boat!
Now you are HIS prize
Sure ain't no surprise
That you're fish-food, you hard-headed goat!

The Sailors' Mermaid

The Sailors' Mermaid

There once was a manatee named Mary.
She, a mammal was not very hairy.
One day while at sea.
She said this shouldn't be!
So, she bought a blond wig from Sea-Fairy.

Sea Sick

I wanted to go fishing in the ocean
Forgot the result of constant motion
You wouldn't believe
How much I heaved
Would give gold for a nausea potion

Decisions Always Before Actions

Mistake can’t cause a fetch of honey from a busy bee hive
ridiculous is an instant transit from sleep to a sea-dive
a decision lands one in distant Germany
or a palace of whores despite how many
don’t blame the devil after having the satisfaction live.

I Cry Rivers For the Ocean

Republican fountain flows black
 on blue seas metamorphic rock, 
draining the earth’s core dry.
Greed streams while oceans cry.
The sea is sick but I’m shell shocked.

Blowing a Kiss

Blowing a  Kiss 

When irksome day, off tangles, comes unstuck
As  the  sun, behind a blushing sea, ducks 
Thoughts  of you I sorely miss
Pep  me up to blow this kiss
To find you stooping , a red rose, to pluck.

There’s no one as funny as Atticus
To go fishing he wrote out a syllabus
He outlined his day
Made a magnificent play
Yet caught with his squid more octopus

Summer Search

Where have they gone, all those great days of yore
When we used to meet down by the sea shore,
Those high clouds above, just drifting away,
The smell of the sea, the gulls at their play.
Why do some think that that was a bore?
Maybe they've never done that before!

Lobster Tales

There once was a crab in the sea
who always wanted to be
a lobster you know
so he had to grow
a tail almost as long as he.

    ...ooops, Carolyn's contest is gone..I missed it...

Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea

Like sheep on a steep rocky slope,
We need to have guidance to cope.
We might fall and slide down
To the sea and all drown.
Heed the ShepherdHe’s our only hope.

Jeckyll Island

There once was a boy from Jeckyll Island Sound
He roamed the beach and in the sand he found
A sea shell, a snorkel
A buried grand paw and a shovel
Adventure awaits in the sand mound.

For the sea tale limerick contest!!
~~~Ninth place win in the contest!!~~~~

Beautiful Chaos

The Galaxy; This cluster of stars
The sea; This concealed beauty and scars,
The inevitable suffering, the desired alleviation
All these could be seen through her eyes' nation!
She was a beautiful chaos, more beautiful than Mars.

Another Sailor's Tail Tale

They paddled till we reached the shore
Where I set them free to explore
Then back to the sea
This sailor did flee
They’ll not paddle me anymore

Ocean Trash

Lawyers want money to buy a new suit
Thieves with a rolex and evil to boot
They're as crooked as can be
They all need buried at sea
That's where they'd be but I just don't pollute
