Well that transmission still doesn’t run
But the crew of Cayenne’s having fun
Now we’re all of good cheer
Cause the skipper bought beer
And he’s having his tenth “‘nuther one!”
The folks at the West Marine store
Were offering discounts galore
So we did our part
And loaded a cart
And blew out the budget, and more!
The folks of the SSCA*
Held a meeting in old Floriday
And so leaving Cayenne
We piled into the van
And embarked on a short holiday
* Seven Seas Cruising Association
For Monday…the Big Event:
With nary a ripple to note
We launched Brian’s beautiful boat
The transmission is pretty
But powerless, what a pity!
She can’t move, but at least she can float
…and a non-original one for Fri/Sat/Sun’s activities:
They bored a hole within the hull
To let the water out
But more and more, to our dismay
The water IN did spout!
Along came the Travelift man
Who lifted us off of our stands
Now we�re doing our thing
Hanging from a sling
Like a trio of orangutans
When a barnacle comes Cayenne’s way
He’ll turn in disgust and dismay
Though he’ll try really hard
With our great Cop-r-gard
He cannot attach, come what may!
The hull was so smooth and so fair
We said, “Let’s put some copper on there!”
Though he really was keen
Now poor Brian is GREEN
From the tips of his toes to his hair
I have a cool sister named Margaret
Who never bought clothes at a Target
To the Thrift store she’d go,
In the rain, sleet or snow.
Now she’s devoid of a house or a closet!
Roses are red
A Dell laptop
Makes a good hockeypuck.
Upon trying to lift out the mast
Discovered that it was held fast
By some glue on the floor
Now to free it, for sure,
Would require a nuclear blast!
