blues in the night

Been seriously gloomy since Friday. Recovering now but thought I'd post a little ditty I wrote just for occasions like this.
shipwrecked

where were you when the tide went out?
i was sitting on a sand dune tasting anxious doubt
i was padding down the island of the sun dried whale
i was swimming in a sea of funky wet

where were you when the headhunters shout?
i was licking up the remnants of a shark feared trout
i was shoring up the sea line where the waves beat blue
i was swimming out a diver's far from shore

where were you when the steamer fanned?
i was sucking up the bubbles of the crab filled sand
i was scrabbling down a cliff side waving arm to deck
i was gasping for the tug line pointed home
