Short Tale Challenge #2 Ship

“Each Tuesday, Edwin Ronald Lambert will be putting up a prompt and you can simply publish a post on your own blog responding to the prompt.

The task is to write a short tale in no more than 100 words.”

Today’s prompt is Ship

I know nothing about a ship, have never been on one and most likely never will so I will write a Pantoum poem that will educate me and maybe you will learn something also.

Sorry, Edwin and readers, there are more than 100 words.
