banner - oceanography is dangerous

by Arch E. Benthic, a.k.a. Harris B. Stewart
“The Id of the Squid,” 1970

The Exec has spent two weeks in traction,
The Chief has a cut on his head,
The Doctor is missing in action
With a burn that has sent him to bed.
Various others have bruises
And legs and backs that are sore.
The dangerous parts of these cruises
Are the motorbikes ridden ashore.
