The Sea Captain

By Donald Weisse Sr.

ve sailed my ship for many a day
Across the stormy sea
Many a ruffian I have carried
and never refused but three.

They met me on a summer day
And saw my gallant ship,
And sought a passage to the other side
Upon a hurried trip,
They offered all the dough they had,
Mixed with a little sass
Which made me kind of hesitate
And I asked them for a pass.
They deemed a pass unnecessary
For men of their degree,
And insisted that I take my ship
And sail it out to sea.

An old man who was standing by
Noted what they said,
Saw them kick me in the ribs
And strike me on the head.
He heard them say they'd steal the boat
And put it out to sea,
And sail away to the other side
To some strange country.
But now the coward of the bunch
The one you'd think was brave,
Suggested that they turn again
And hide in a mountain cave.

And as the day went slowly by,
I heard the truth in time,
I found that they were murderers
And guilty of a crime.
So, as I sail my sturdy ship
Until my life has ceased,
I know not who my friends may be
Unless they've traveled East.

I was notified of shipment of my ring on Friday, March 6th received it on Monday, March 9th. Great shipping service!

My order was for the Blue Lodge ring, model (359176) in 14k Yellow Gold with a solid back and blue stone. Basically a simple, classic, timeless style. I must say I am extremely satisfied with it. The quality and color is beautiful. The masonic symbol on the stone is detailed and very striking. I dare say it is a delight to look at, and with which to display my Masonic pride.

Order was placed on a Sunday, so counting as you could do nothing until Monday, that made delivery to my door in exactly 5 weeks. Very happy!

Thanks for all your follow through, and creating one very happy customer make that 'repeat customer'!
