Some distant shore

whereon no Argonaut trod,

s i l h o u e t t e d

the rotting hulk,

broken-boned on the beach

bleached by Ages benign indifference,

discarded amongst vicissitudes of time

a memento of heroes

long since forgotten,

their wraith’s lament

b e w a i l i n g

the whaling ship,

w r e c k e d

ancient timbers

cursed by the inscription

” A h a b “
