Merchant Sailors....Choi's Sonnet

What wares do ye bring back from the sea
From far foreign countries of an exotic land
And what tales of adventure speaketh thee
Of treasures found buried deep in the sand
A wilderness of natives that got out of hand
Pray tell in a tongue we may all understand
What of sharp spears they made to defend
What trinkets did thy trade them to befriend
Were they of burnished gold or just pretend
Questions need answers to feedeth the brain
How else shall these ignorances comprehend
If they had not endured their wildest terrain
For experiences that merchant sailors gain
Their adventures shared shall forever remain.
