Salty water splashed about,
Sailors aboard began to scream and shout.
"Ahoy!" said the captain as he strained to see,
"Land! I see land right there ahead of me!"
Tossing and turning and thrashing about,
Steering with precision? That option was out.
The clouds came quickly and with menacing speed,
A ray of sunshine was surely in need.
The looming darkness took it's place,
Water began to pour down from space.
Captain took the wheel and try as he might,
This awful sea storm put up a might fight.
And just when his heart seem drowned with dread,
Captain woke with a start, and hopped out of bed.
