If ya see this Tim, it was in the mail to you a while ago. It was fun
to write. I hope it amuses and maybe reminds you of your brother.
I'm better with words than a camera. It is easy to sing to the tune...
Enjoy the diving, seahunt
Listen to a story about a Capt'n named Tim
A poor seafarer barely kept his doggie fed.
Then one day he was clearing out his hold,
when he found a map that told of Inca Gold.
...Tombs...Emeralds...Gold...Big jungle spiders
He mortgaged all he had just to make the long sea trip.
Through the waves and storms, his hopes did never slip.
Climbing through the jungle, he finally made it to the stash
Much to his dismay, the thing was just a useless geo-cache.
Busted... Nothing... Fools Goal... Toss it off a cliff... Get plastered.
Out of cash and feeling low he rowed his boat to berth,
wondering if he even belonged here on this mean ol' Earth.
Then came a movie guy who wanted to tell the tale,
Money from the movie came in pail after pail.
...Green stuff... What boats run on... Moola... Shamoolies.
His kin folk said Tim move somewhere warm and dry,
He told em leaving the ocean would surely make him cry.
The water was the place where he was made to roam
So he gussied up his vessal and made it into home.
... Teak... Stainless Steel... Brass ... Hired labor... Lots of it
Now his boat has a king size bed,
everyone is happy and the doggy's always fed.
He takes out friends for diving at half the regular price,
all in all he figures he's got a mighty good life.
...Salt air... Blue water... Good company... Washing off seagull pucky
... Kick off anyone annoying... Sleep in... Hunt bugs...
