Jonah  Reply with quote  

A young man named Jonah once set out to sea, to sail the seven seas,
And at no point did he ever doubt whether she would be waiting.
For he knew somewhere far and away from his heart was the beautiful girl of his dreams,
So with compass in hand and a gold wedding band he set sail.

Now the first night was fine as he travelled the waves, sleeping under the stars,
But the next blew a storm that did little to warn him of danger.
As he tried to hold course through the rain and the swells with prayers to Gods and the stars,
The storm, it grew worse and the hull it did burst and Jonah was thrown to the depths.

For a week he was drifting through briney demise with nought but the sea to be found,
With the sun beating brutal and all hope left futile he drifted,
When a long came a ship full of friendship and food to save him before he had drowned.
As they fed him to health, they shared knowledge of wealth and desires.

Now these new friends he had found were not sailors, but pirates of ill intent,
And when Jonah came round to see pirates abound he got frightened.
But with nothing to do, no escape to be made and all of his energy spent,
Jonah succumbed to greed, joined the piratey breed and sailed on.

Two score years and ten, he would sail through the foam, plundering all in his wake,
Until one day a tale met his ears over ale in a tavern.
It told of a girl with such beauty and grace that none could hope to forsake,
And he set down his mind that this beauty he'd find and they'd wed.

So a pirate named Jonah then set out to sea, to sail the seven seas,
In search of girl who, somewhere in the world, he would marry.
And he knew somewhere far and away from his heart was that beautiful girl of his dreams,
With his cutlass in hand and a gold wedding band he set sail.

Just out of port, and outnumbered by far, Jonah's crew were caught quite unware,
Revenge it would seem was to shatter his dream in a flash.
A merchant, quite bold, had sought Jonah's crew to reclaim what he saw as fair,
And a battle ensued, one that Jonah would lose, he was sure.

After some time had passed Jonah's ship lay a wreck, not a pirate alive to retell,
The tale of his plight and the fantastic fight they had fought.
Jonah lay with his pride, both bleeding and torn, in puddle of blood where he'd fell,
As his eyes closed up tight, the ship sailed through the night to the shore.

When he neared the end, his ship came aground on the shore he had left as a youth,
And there stood a girl, who had travelled the world, for her love.
A young girl he'd fogotten was stood on the shore, a smile of love as her proof,
And together they soared to the stars where he'd moored, young Jonah and his true love, Marie.

A young man named Jonah once set out to sea, to sail the seven seas,
And at no point did he ever doubt whether she would be waiting.
For he knew somewhere far and away from his heart was the beautiful girl of his dreams,
And with compass in hand and a gold wedding band he set sail.
