O’Day 27

Watching the reflections

Of all of the revelations

Bouncing off the water,

The inclination is

To buy, barter, borrow

A bigger boat

And sail away,

But where to,

There are pirates

From Columbia to Somalia,

Rogue waves, hidden reefs

And dangers and all sorts

Of scary shit,

So for the time being

It’s save your money,

Stick with the O’Day 27,

Dance with the wind on the waves

Up and down Discovery Passage, all the channels

And inlets that millionaires come from

Miles away to play on,

Tack back and forth

Through the reflections

Of revelations bouncing off the water,

Smiling all the way.
