They’d save the world; make sure the unborn die;
Of sin they laugh, of righteousness they cry.
They crucified Petraeus for his sin,
And let another Clinton go again.
They’d mock a Bush or Quayle where’er they slipped,
But Biden for the prez is well-equipped.
They’d take much from the rich; give to the poor
And middle class must the same thing endure.
For their hypocrisy there is no cure.

I must go down to the seas again, the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by;
And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking,
And a gray mist on the sea’s face, and a gray dawn breaking.

I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.

I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull’s way and the whale’s way, where the wind’s like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick’s over.
