Now or never

von Norbert Rath

Seldom is the sea so calm
that you could as well just wait
in the next port without harm.
Caution never is too late.

Because sailors know it best:
suddenly the sea can fight
that no chance remains to rest
or sleep through a quiet night.

Consequently a decision
what a captain orders done
might evoke the crew’s derision,
but storm stress is never fun.
