The fun of boating

Jimmy is sailing on a boat of red, or is it green?

All Jimmy knows is boating's pretty keen!


Catching air from the waves because of high winds,

Jimmy's super excited, he shouts and he grins


His father at the helm is white as a sheet,

But Jimmy doesn't notice, this is pretty neat!


Suddenly Dad leans over and projectiles a stream

Carried on the wind that's howling abeam,


Jimmy gets a face full, which makes him ralph too

The outing's turned from gleeful to bad, all due


To Dad getting seasick which makes Jimmy as well,

Turning this nautical adventure into a living Hell


They somehow trailer and return to the rental place

With remnants of the sea stuck to their face


The gagging cashier gives back their credit card,

And once at home, Mom makes them hose in the yard


So ends Jimmy's exciting sea-faring wavy thrill

In a cloud of yuck and an outrageous cleaning bill!

Gripping poem, Mike. I always wonder now what you're going to write about next. I'll stay tuned.

With my wandering, sick mind one never knows, thanks, Penny
