Too Late

Believe if you will, but believe sooner
Than the man on his pretty old schooner!
Life at sea has taught him at last that boon's
Do not come upon those that do fast so
Long as he; for he did never last. Oh,
Throw upon yourselves the protection, woe
And vice and sin, greedy deception toe
Your line with cunning hand! Direction now
Has been changed, no longer deflection! Look
Fast to your lines and your sails my friends, cook
No meal to eat on the high raging seas!
Be not stubborn up until the end's brook.
For holding fast to your beliefs makes wise
Counsel vain; caught up in the storming ties.
