Sailors against rough passages

                                        When the going gets tough, we’re not the people to call upon.

                                    Calm seas, quiet cabins

                                    Soft beds, long leaves

                                    Tasty grub, short trips

                                    Sundays off, subservient crews

                                    Rigidly flexible work schedules,

                                    ISM free , QA nowhere to be seen

                                    Paper less admin., clerks supplied

                                    Office hours departures

                                    Post-lunch arrivals

                                    Long smokos, late turn to’s

                                    Ample dhoby dust, self greasing nipples

                                    Unlimited spares, early evening tipples

                                    Nicer coloured uniforms, stronger toilet seats

About allatsea

Sixty year old master-mariner. Absolutely gorgeous. Well wedged.....when compared to a Nairobi street urchin. Sorted, in that I haven't been in court recently. Hopelessly optimistic, terminally disappointed. Good with cats and other fluffy things. No musical talent. Generous to a fault provided it's someone else's round. Political centreist with far right and left viewpoints. A green activist from the hydrocarbon position with nuclear leanings. Averse to avarice but always happy to receive lottery wins, gifts, windfalls, legacies, prizes and wet sloppy kisses.
