No More Sailing to Turtle Nook

Updated: Jul 13

This is the story of Silent Syl

Coconut Cal and their boat named Thrill

Also on board, a pup called Jink

Who really caused morale to sink


You’ll never guess how long it took

from Rat’s Cove to Turtle Nook

With Syl steering on island rum

a good half day, then some


Of course there was another matter

that sure raised a lot of chatter

Coconut Cal jumped in the drink

to save three-legged-puppy Jink


When rescue got a shark’s attention

Silent Syl switched to prevention

He fired a flare into the ocean

the flame expired, it stayed in motion


It struck the shark upside his jaw

who then released wee Jink’s paw

Cal got in, fished out Jinky

but shark reached up, grabbed his pinky


This is the story of Silent Syl

Coconut Cal and their boat named Thrill

Also on board, a pup called Jink

And did he ever cause morale to sink


So we returned a bit worse for wear

was hard for onlookers not to stare

Staggering Syl nursed Jink’s poor paw

while Cal’s limp mitt, hung red’n’raw


I hoped we’d learned from all our errors

but now the sailing comes with terrors

Silent Syl lays off the booze

Nine-digit Cal sets auto cruise


Poor Jinky shakes inside the head

shark’s-teeth nightmares give him dread

And as for me, I’m ship’s cat Gruff

but enough’s enough, next port I’m off


This was the story of Silent Syl

Coconut Cal and their boat named Thrill

Also on board, a pup called Jink

And did he ever cause morale to sink
