We should have gotten old Poseidon's blessings. Afraid it's too late now.

Call his cell?

Ten minutes, huh? Fine. Thank you. Goodbye.

Sailors prayed to Poseidon for a safe voyage, sometimes drowning horses as a sacrifice (Wikipedia).

One Single Impression: Choices

Youthful Choices

my Johnny Boy please use your head
don't go too far away from home
head for the gold at rainbow's end
not a good choice alone unknown

I'm Johnny Boy I've made my pick
not left or right which one to choose
I'll take the cloud where angel sits
all seem the same nothing to loose

first love is sweet ne'er to forget
it mattered not soon went their way
our Johnny Boy had no regret
for sixty years savored one day

. . .

found this of love that Johnny had
though you travel from home so far
making your choices good or bad
savor the rose your way is hard
