FUTURE SAILORS


Future sailors

Blinking, Flashing

On god forsaken land

All electronic castaways

Robot starfish gather one by one

They have received signal

And manage at last a huge workhorse

To rescue these greenhorns

Future sailors flash a smile

And feel connected

But Nylon Admiral and cyborg sea-dog

Cast their grouchy glance

On the once digital stowaways

Without a flash they curtly sail away

And disappear into the mist for ever

Leaving them behind

  2. I agree with Debi...I definitely felt them to be pirates. "Leaving them behind" is so sad.

  3. I really like the sense of adventure gone awry which you captured here, and the of the narrative was top notch. I imagined some sort lumbering space ark...how fantastic! Thanks for posting to the Out of Standard

  6. There's something ominous about this with greenhorns marooned in a godforsaken land awaiting rescue only to have a grouchy admiral leave them behind. Yikes!
