"Coastal Scene" by William Bradford‘Careless Dan’ by Michael Harmon The Society May 21, 2017 Humor, Poetry 2 Comments There was a man who owned a yacht. His name was Dan when it was hot he brought his clan on board a lot to get a tan. When it was not, “So what!” _____________So rot got into Dan and soon began his yacht to rot and from the yacht his loyal clan departed. “Not because of Dan,” said they, but rot was why they ran. “My name is Dan I own a yacht, and you are not a loyal clan. When it was hot you got your tan. When there was rot you turned and ran. Now I am not a happy man.” And when the yacht held none but Dan there was a yacht that owned a man.
