Not As I Thought

Osei Zion

I thought this white boat sits quiet on the blue waters

From afar, she rests in silence

She dances reluctantly, to-and-fro


A little 'pompong' pushes her asunder

The cargo sidelines her from the lines

Not as I thought


Sunburn, see breeze and salty haze

Rust her away bit by bit like a rotten bird

She sneezes so silently on the sea


But she sits beautifully

And everyone admires her
