Dinner on a Boat

Cold Beans

Our sailboat rises and falls with each wave.

The wind howls and rocks us, testing our brave.

Trying to make dinner is just such a chore.

Things slide off the counter and smash on the floor.

So, its a can of cold beans, until Poseidon behaves.

    Good job! I never thought about making dinner on a sailboat, I can see how that is challenging. LOVE the Poseidon reference, that was creative and unexpected!
