Barney
By Robert J. Roe
 
From “A Sailor's Note-book”

BARNEY is bad watch-mate,
Whatfor I do many times his work
Un hate him for it.
 
But when I go out on jib-boom
Im squally night        5
To makeit fast the headsails,
Un sea takes me in his mouth
Up to mine waist
Un spits me out again,
Barney is like angel        10
Sweating in cold blow.
