“Play is the exultation of the possible.” Martin Buber

Waiting For Valour

Our flag hung limp in the stillness 
as we nervously awaited the first 
wave of the enemy, outnumbered,
waiting for valour, cutlass at the ready,
peering at the near horizon as the 
biscuits ran out and mutiny was at
hand in our blanket barque.
