MY BLUE SIT-ON

(to the tune of "My Blue Heaven")

When scupper-holes bail
No fear to capsize!
I’m stable in my new sit-on.

She’s plump but petite,
Just measures nine feet
I’ve christened her My Blue Heaven.

I'’ll need a saddle-seat, a paddle, some repellent (-bug)
A type III vest to keep each vessel-rider snug.

Self-draining kayak,
Swift lift to roof-rack
Where I strap on My Blue Heaven.

A dolly to haul,
Don’t bring alcohol (chmmh!)
Boat-ramp to launch My Blue Heaven.

Could have a fishin’-pole, small ice-chest on a tidal ‘crick’
And she won’t swamp in wake or surf – that’s quite a trick.

background: trawlers

Where scupper-holes drain
Skip’s feeling no pain
Secure in his new blue sit-on.

I’ve got my cellphone in a baggy, I’m not gab-repressed
So while I’m damp and floating, I’ll 'yack-yack or text.

When my darling calls
That evening is nigh
I’ll be docking My Blue Heaven.

A neat gift for me
Just turned seventy.
I’m happy with My Blue Heaven,

Just so happy in My Blue Heaven
