The Sailor

A sailor once said to me
With a countenance sunny
“One day you’ll look back on this
And it will all seem funny
You’ll laugh at the storm
That took away the sails
You will learn in time
That hope and faith prevails
You will brush all hardship
From the collar of your coat”
But I’m still bailing water
And he’s still pissing in my boat
