Container ship

Container ship

A Poem by Wild Rose

Sailing over the ocean

Like a camel of the sea

Carrying goods to far off places

Trade for you and me


Merchants sit in their office

On their PC screen

They sell and order goods

Goods they have never seen


Goods are locked in containers

All the same exact size

What are the contents ?

Only the customs men are wise


Goods are in the hold

Containers are out on deck

Containers in their hundreds

Completely fill the deck


 Over mighty oceans

The container ship sails on

Carrying it precious cargo

To countries far away they've gone

this is a very different topic....

but i see a metaphor....we sit at our screen, corresponding with many we have never seen...
and our poems are containers with our feelings inside.

'Sailing over the ocean
Like a camel of the sea'...Great opening line, those massive ships, crew and cargo, keep the wheels of industry churning ever onwards! An enjoyable read, kudos my friend!
