While we poor souls on the ocean wide are plowing through the deep
Our officers commanded us, and it’s them we must obey
Expecting every moment for to get cast away”

Anyone with a tale to tell of high adventure on the high seas, mermaids, shipwrecks, bold raids, buffeting storms and miscellaneous maritime misadventures is welcome to come tell a tale, and all lovers of story are welcome to join us simply to listen.
