Gently Down the Stream

Steady the boat,

Gently down the stream.

Singing familiar tune,

Merrily, Merrily it is so.

Stay seated,

Eyes gazing past the bow.

One hand port,

Another starboard side.

Unwavering amidst climbing swells,

Intoning with songs of Universe.

Steady as she goes,

Next stop nobody knows…
