Going adrift

Once upon a time
I was the greatest sailor all over
the wild oceans
and I used to chase beautiful mermaids
that I used to call -oh, yes, I called them-
'dreams'.

Here and there,
steering my grand ship,
reaching shores,
those I'll never see again,
and wandering through unknown seas
I got to understand my own self
as any of you won't ever expect.

But now this old seaman is
wasting this time of his looking after a good Scotch
and he is -still-
remembering those things,
little precious things,
that could have been
but never were.
