The Conversion

The Conversion

A Chapter by Dave Brown



Mr. and Mrs. big boat

Had an offspring they named ‘Tug’

They both loved him so very much

They gave him a continual hug


He was hugged and hugged so often

They’d never put him down

When they moved to put him into the water

He cried out he would probably drown


He hugged onto his Fathers decks

And onto his Mother’s too

The little baby working boat

Felt his existence required a judicial review


While he was lying on the beach one day

The Harbor ferry boat hit a rock

And before it and passengers sank out of sight

It had to be pulled to the dock


Ma and Pa big boat were out pulling logs

So, with no other rescue craft around

Tug initiated a heroic rescue response

Even tho’ he damned near drowned


Because this episode had him totally freaked

He’s never gone near water again

And instead went to a custom fabrication shop

Where they converted him into a train
