Ship Of Fools (Calvert Robert)

Sleek, swift, streamlined ship, shield-clad and shining, tell to me the tale of your trip when the limpest of men were your lining O I know you were a ship of fools O I know you were a ship of fools You tried to take them to new trade but they were afraid to follow. Land-lubbers of the lowest grade their hearts and their heads were both hollow O I know you were a ship of fools O I know you were a ship of fools But your form is far-out, framed by foam: a cloven-crocodile. Whale's-highway is your home Swan's-Riding is your style. Fine-finned, shaped like a shark the wind awaits your awaking. Designed for delving into the dark of mysteries in the making O I know you were a ship of fools O I know you were a ship of fools A ship of fools ship of fools you were a ship of fools.
