’T WAS such a little, little boat
That toddled down the bay!
’T was such a gallant, gallant sea
That beckoned it away!

’T was such a greedy, greedy wave
That licked it from the coast;
Nor ever guessed the stately sails
My little craft was lost!

-- Emily Dickinson

Folks who fear the greedy, greedy waves
Far from the coast, should live on a tree!
Wonder with their little, little boats
Why they go out to the sea!

Hobbes' simple, simple logic
as always stumps poor, old me!
Meekly I obey and drag
my boat up on a tree!
