democracy installed

Democracy installed

The ship was in dry dock

the captain and his crew ate at a canteen.

He and the officers had wine

The crew drank beer, bottles after bottles

loudly they told the officers what the thought

of the ship and her officers.

They had been let loose from the discipline

opposed upon them like children left alone

when the teacher had gone for a pee.

It ended in a fist fight table and chairs flying

in the air.

Next day the captain and his officers sat

sharing a big table with the team nothing to drink

for anyone, the captain was a wise man

the team loved him for that.

Another gem, Jan. I really enjoy these odd moments from seemingly random lives and scenarios that you often write about.
