A Boat in a Tree

A boat in a tree,

A silly place to be.

Why would there be

A boat in a tree?


There came a great wind,

That wouldn’t rescind.

That couldn’t be pinned

Before it had sinned.


The ocean did roar,

Like rarely before.

And finally did score

By coming ashore.


The wind picked up things,

Like butterfly wings.

And powerful as kings

Or a lion who sings.


Then up it did go,

Just like a show.

The boat travelled slow

Before it did know.


Over the sand,

And over the land.

To find a tree stand

Just like it was planned.


Out of the water,

Not what it ought-a.

Something it sort-a

Never have thought-a.


A boat in a tree,

A silly place to be.

But I happened to see

A boat in a tree.


This is based on a true incident of a cabin cruiser, about 25 feet long, up about 15 feet in a tree after Hurricane Sandy.
