Miss Abagail Mannering
by Miss Abagail Mannering
Life is like a maiden voyage,
unpredicatble and unique.
Sometimes the sailing's smooth,
and sometimes the waters' rough.
Sometimes the fare is a feast,
quite palatable to your gullet;
and sometimes the pickings are slim
and the water brackish.
Sometimes your quarters are confortable,
roomy and relazing.
And sometimes they confine you 'til
you crave to be a gull and fly free.
Orders given, and orders received
are oft times not the same.
What we perceive to mean one thing
most often means quite another.
The direction and course we travel
is left to science and fate.
and we say....
what is meant to be will be.
