Hi Jim, I can hear a sea shanty in my head!

Thanks, Andy, for the new to me term, 'sea shanty.'
Per Google Dictionary:
Sea shanties (singular "shanty", also spelled "chantey"; derived from the French word "chanter", 'to sing') were shipboard working songs. Some speculate that shanties may have been sung as early as the 15th century though there is little evidence to support this claim.

We all have heard those stories before. Well put in this haiku. I like the photos too. The second one seems to say the past is being overtaken by the future.
