Protestant Apologetics

Mainmast

Mainmast (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

The colors of our homeland fly atop the mainmast.

The black pennant, beneath

signaling no quarter given.

 

We’ve taken in fresh water,

a crop of limes,

we’re flush with powder and 24 pound shot.

 

A sail’s spotted on the horizon

the order’s been given to chase and beat to quarters.

 

We’re to our stations

to run out the guns

and watch

 

the distance to our prize

close rapidly

as the boatswain begins a tune

and we all join in.
