Captain Gorilla

An Ode to Captain Gorilla

Captain Gorilla had a banana shaped boat
It looked pretty weird but it really did float

Around the world he set off to sail
In this adventure he was determined to not fail

The voyage took him six years to complete
He would stop to work for money for food to eat

He visited islands so tropical and remote
Inhabited only by hogs and goat

He sailed through storms with one hundred foot waves
Smaller storms have sent me to their graves

His skill at sailing and banana boat so strong
Ensured his circumnavigation would be complete before long

You have just heard the story of a captain ape
His favourite foods are banana and grape

The End
