HOW TO SINK A FERRY
By Jim Robbins

"Captain -- bottoms up!"
Owner hastens stock and trade
Marble counters shine!

Industry unleashed!
Increase profits, black out truth
Marble counters fine!

Cargo cult is rule
High seas manifested greed
Marble counter's pride!

Marine souls all dead!
Whisky bars can't kill the pain,
Marble counters brined!

EPILOGUE


911's call
Black traders make bloody bets
Marble counters' deal!
