Kisses for the Whale

empty box rowboat
in the living room
sets sail
orders from the captains:
kisses for the whale

sharp-eyed daughter
in thrall with her game
a glimpse of immortality
on the strength of our name

jumping and playing
no riches can compete
blood of our blood
makes a life complete

the news comes down:
there’s trouble in the skies
no worries from the captains
the ship is doing fine
