Worse Things Happen at Sea

It doesn’t matter how bad it gets

Worse things happen at sea

So I’m staying away from the ocean

So worse things don’t happen to me

Though I must admit

I am intrigued

About what these worse things are

Is the sea better at worse things

Has the land just a small repertoire

Then again it could the currents

Or the phases of the moon

Or the sea seeking its revenge

For the human rubbish strewn

Or perhaps it’s nothing of the sort

Just something people say

To ameliorate the worse things

That on land

Happen every day
