Wind Blow

Dislodged in dry dock

A ship blown by the wind

Disturbing force

Dangerous betimes

Better stay indoors

When gales are blowing through

The world tossed in turmoil

Nothing you can do


A ship for deep sea searches

War graves and shipwrecks

Comes a cropper in the wind

At angle all the decks

People injured suddenly

Rescue service there

Thank God for help and ambulance

Thank God that people care


The winds of change are blowing too

Through the world at large

The scourge of war and poverty

Immigrants on a barge

We are the attenders

Do not stand idly by

The wind takes no prisoners

Listen for the cry

+ Strong winds in Scotland today dislodged a ship in dry dock in Edinburgh.
