Plain Boats, Luxury Boats, Small Boats – Written August 2021 (Aged 46)

Plain Boats, Luxury Boats, Small Boats

plain boats
sail on waters for decades
they built
a gin palace
at the bottom of your garden
where they hide their smiley face

luxury boats
sail on other waters
with fish made of wealth
they romance sharks
who have learned
archetypal ways of stealth
and their gin palaces
are soaked in tonic water

small boats
can do very well
when calm sea
feeds into larger lakes
those smiley people
still build gin palaces
and drown in strange water




James Garratt – August 2021
