The weather was changeable, A warming sun for the previous hour, Then, without warning, The wind rose high, The roof rose higher: No use running for cover, I thought, Since the cover had gone the way of my courage. You see, I had a role to fulfil Sure, its fulfillment in sunny spells was a breeze But in a Force Ten gale? (Cue howls of laughter) Progress was at the pace of a snail And nerves are torn to ribbons (Much like the poor flags). Was it life or death? Well, it depended on how much you didn't wish to die. Luckily for me, my aim in life is not to witness death And that is why I pushed on, And huffed and puffed Until we got our Lifeboat to the stricken drunken Jetski pilots.
