Just a piece of nonsense with a message.
Just a bouyancy aid
tied up there since
you were made
How long have you stood there?
By sea and man abused
Ignored and unloved
as you wait to be used
I replaced you on your peg today,
coiled your rope repleated
Because I know you will be here
to save a life when you are needed
So I hope I never need you friend, and on your peg you gently decay
But just in case you someday needed let no man carry you away.
