Middle-aged from Middletown, Hugh Germaine was fit and bearded. His bunk was small and ever crowded As he sailed city to city.

With nervous hands Hugh fumbled with plans Next port two weeks away. “Like a ballast leak, he’ll sink in a week,” That’s what the crew did say.

Heavenly fast, the two weeks passed, The day was fair and fine. He portaged with crew, then off walked Hugh Over Pier 39.
