The Good Ship UK

I once set sail on the good ship UK,
Not knowing what awaited on that fateful day,
For the seas had been calm, and the weather quite fair,
All the while she’d been led by young Captain Blair,
Who’d fled when a storm seemed it might take us down,
And left us in the charge of that grumpy old Brown,
Who was ousted by rogues, without support of the crew,
That scurvy dog, Cameron, with his young number two,
“Don’t worry,” they shouted, “and don’t you fear!”
But we could all see the rocks coming dangerously near.
With a mighty great crash the ship ran aground,
Still the captain assured us we were all safe and sound,
We’d all stay afloat if we lightened our load,
The life boats, life jackets and flares had to go,
“Steer into the wind,” came the cries from the shore,
“Are you mad?” said the skipper, the advice he ignored,
Soon the ship began losing its men to the sea,
“We’re in this together, I just spilled my tea!”
Said the captain as he ordered us onto the rocks,
Reasoning closer to land was closer to docks,
“The men won’t be safer if we head out to sea,”
Said the skipper, young Osborne,
“There is no Plan B!”
