The Crash

Waves crash onto the shore
A lone boat spins out of control
Wind rages, battering the boat
The boat heads toward the rocky shore
No one seems to care
Everyone hides
Keep the latches tight
Sleep through the night
Sleep through the storm

Sun rises
The sailors awake
Arguments ensue
Who's side would you take?

Barbara's?
She didn't know
It was an accident

Ewan's?
She should have known
It was in the book

Talbot and Sheehan
Try to bring peace
Unfortunately
Peace doesn't last long
