The Good Ship Endeavour

if you are sailing into a storm
you don’t seek a sinking vessel
i am being pragmatic
romance is alluring
a vision of paradise islands
leading to shipwrecks
it doesn’t save lives
I’m a sailor
it’s not a choice or by chance
it’s an anchor
but most sailors can’t swim
i will build my own ship
and be Captain
I wont name this ship Star of the Ocean
or Victory or even Endurance
if i ever recruit
the crew will be tried and tested
and walk the plank when found wanting
I name this ship Endeavour
