His Liquid Grave - Meluseena

Mully was a sailor, born on the high, rough seas.
A scallywag, a pollywog, an unrepentant lout was he.
He drank, he gamed, he lied, he cursed,
He charmed the ladies with words unrehearsed.
All to forget a love he once courted,
To the sewers and seas, he finally consorted,
Young but bitter, he lived on a close shave,
Till alas, he lost his life to a liquid grave.

  15. Wow! Do you write the poems there? They're so simple and lovely! do you have a job related to the arts? Because I surely wouldn't be surprised! I think you'd be a great illustrator for children's books, etc.! :D

    Hope you're doing well! And I hope your interview in Seattle went well. Do tell about it!
    Erin :)
