Rum Ration Poetry challange!

We have had a member complaining that RR was better in the old days.
I can remember years ago a story beng told were members were invited to add a line at a time.
Todays matelots are more sophisticated than those of yesterday so perhaps some poetry may be more appropriate.

SO:
As a kid this was one of the poems that I had to learn.
Now John Masefield aint too bad a poet but I am syre RR members can do better.
So with the example below I will start off the RR version and invite RR members to add a
line or a verse at a time.
Masefields Pathetic attempt is written below for those that need it :)

I must go down to the sea again meet slappers at dockyard gates
And all they ask is a tenner a time to satisfy sailors and their mates
I must return to the Albany the Lennox and Mighty Fine
Excellent scrumpy sophisticated clientel, all friends of mine.





Sea Fever
By John Masefield
I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by;
And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea’s face, and a grey dawn breaking.

I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.

I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull’s way and the whale’s way where the wind’s like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick’s over.

I must go down to the sea again meet slappers at dockyard gates
Crashed last night, no fuck, so asking bout rebates

Go masterbate she cried, with a sneer, you are a handy man,
So hand once more, seeking overtime...

Thinking slightly laterally.
Possibly 1950s, 60s.

Dirty US warship with her salt-caked smoke-stack
Butting up to Portsmouth south of Portland Bill,
Two months of ice-cream, hominy grits (no alcohol)
Dreaming of some Brickwoods and the charms of Pompey Lil.

I must go down to the Heads again
I really need to Pee
Been drinking in the stokers mess
Had far too much C.S.B.

I must go down to the Royal Yacht today
My oppo tells me I will be suprised.
He went down to one mess
And found geezers as Ladies disguised

I must go down to the sea again
And walk along the shore
Nip in the rose of England
And find that nice clean whore

She tells me she's a virgin
Her minge is tight and clean
But me being black things can change fast
Try "seconds" see what I mean

I must go down on that girl again
And do as she would wish
And as I tonged along her thong
I'll taste that Portsmouth fish

Yes I must see her one more time
Before I get to rusty
Before her boobs sag down too far
And her knickers get too crusty
