CCC#31: Blast me boy …

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #31

I made a boat
It stayed afloat
I sailed it up by Cromer way

But how to moor it, wondered I
When there isn’t a jetty anyplace nigh

I hauled it up that long pebbly beach
But, blast me boy, that’s a lesson to teach
If you haven’t a back like Terminator’s actor
Like everyone else, best use a tractor

  4. Gave me a smile. But alas, I know of at least one friend’s husband who tried to move ‘that’ boat by himself, and ended up in the hospital. Great humorous poetic advice.

      I thank you. All along that shore are tractors and winches, so it’s easy to guess that to physically haul ashore isn’t a good idea
      Moreover, less obvious from the shot I showed, but this was quite a helfty catamaran.
