On a Farr Far Away ....


There was an old fellow from Denmark
Who was searching in vain for a landmark
He made his way East
The Farr is a beast
But alone he's devoid of a benchmark.

There's a wedge coming down from the North
Who knows what will happen henceforth
Next WX might show
Which way the winds blow
As for now, we foresee a tack port(h)


Good luck to my fellow Go4it
I doubt he and I will deplore it
We chose a route South
He followed the Mouth
And by now, by Jove, we'll explore it

There's another old fellow named Wolff
Not a man you'd expect to play golf.
Oh no, he's a sailor.
Very rarely a failure.
In fact, as a sailor he's prof.


My ancient aquaintance Go4it
Is in favor of North here pre audit
Not knowing the weather
I am wondering whether
The new wind shows gains or a forfeit.

Thoughts on going home to Scandinavia from Lindisfarne in a Longship Drake at 5 kn:

There was an old viking named Lars
who sailed his 'Mouthansar' afars
"Let's brexit" he cried,
"I'm hating this ride.
It's as long as the journey to Mars."
