The keeper sits, drinking his tea.

The lighthouse looms over the sea.

The lighthouse keeper

rests in his room.

The boat unaware

of impending doom.

The experienced captain maintains his log,

As the boat is swallowed by descending fog.

The lighthouse flickers and falters its beam,

The way for the boat nowhere to be seen.

Midnight comes with the STRIKE of a clock.

The little boat is battered by rocks.

The captain knows they’re about to sink,

But not before he readies his ink.

He drains his rum bottle, to put in a note.

On which he wrote

The lighthouse keeper brings it inside

And puts it down where the others reside.

He counts his bottles, now three hundred and three,

And sits back down to finish his tea.

Consider it a warning to those who set sail,

Never forget the Lighthouse Keepers Tale!
