No pilot

The ships in the bay of Cascais

Are waiting for a pilot to take them to port.

They have been there long

A strike by the dock workers take time

In the meantime, the seamen do a little work

Painting here and there but mostly

Sitting in the sun getting a tan.

The cook is worried he needs a supply of food

No more vegetable left except the canned stuff.

He has frozen meat, but not enough of it

Should the strike last.

He sighs and drinks another coffee

Another day in the life, told as it is with another wonderful choice of words to describe how it is.
A pleasure to read.
