Quotes / Lost at Sea

Alone, alone, all, all alone,
Alone on a wide wide sea!
And never a saint took pity on
My soul in agony.

Water, water, everywhere,
But not a drop to drink!

Mister potman, do you have a letter for me
from my own true love
lost at sea?
The Decemberists, "Lost at Sea"

Certainly most people in Morris’ place would have had certain misgivings about being stranded aboard a life raft, facing the unrelenting hunger and the possibility of having to eat the weaker members of the crew just to eke out the chance of survival for a few more days, but as Morris was an Asiatic black bear he had absolutely no qualms about it whatsoever.
