My Captain, My Captain

My Captain! My Captain, my Captain!
Hoist this pink flag! Sail this full-rigged vessel
point your compass to my true-south
prop me up on the deck, spread me wide.
Set sail; set your propeller throttling –
this cruise I’ll revel – god, what a voyage
how the motion, the appeasing waves of the sea
rock me back n’ forth, from relish to ravish.
My Captain! My Captain, my Captain!
in your pilothouse what skilled sailor you’re
with a big rudder, steering me to Bermuda –
how oh your thrusters give the utmost zest.
