War Ships

not my photo
Crazy 21
Riveting a sail boat
Short shorts
T shirt that says “crew”
Every girl builds boats
Don’t they?
Hanging out with the “crew”
Having a beer
On tap
Maybe a Guinness
Maybe a dark and dirty
Childlike visitors
To the museum that day
Some unsure of where they are
Or how they got to the harbor
I tell them about history
From before my parents were born
Solemn rememberers  
Know all too well
Why they’re taking
One more walk across a war ship
I start telling them about the war
And they change it up
I let them tell me how the war
Really went

P.S Although not built as a war ship, the Acadia was refit to a war ship during both world wars.
