I'Ll Just Shorten My Speech

'Captain?
The ship has a leak.
I think it is sinking! '

What part of it?

'What part of it, sir? '

Yes!
Is it near the dining room,
Or near the kitchen?

'I am not sure, sir.
But I do believe it is near the bow! '

Well...
I'll just shorten my speech.
And tell the crew not to use,
The applause sign!
And you get a mop...
Or some sponges,
To take care of that.
I don't want anyone slipping...
After OR before I take that bow!
Got it?

'Sir...
You have no idea! '
