Just a lonely boat.
No people.
Just the open ocean.
Why are you sitting there, decrepit old boat?
Where did you come from?
Where have you been?
What stories could you tell?
It must have been such fun,
Being a boat.
Not having to worry about very much.
Except floating.
And where the fish are.
But now you are just
A lonely old boat.

The author's comments:
I saw a boat when we were driving over a bridge once. It was old and broken down-looking and it didn’t have any people on it. That made me think about this. You could make it over dramatic and say it with a skull in your hand for embellishment. :) that would be funny.
