Arrow The Cutter

(From brother Tamaroa)

THE CUTTER
And when she steams into the harbor
People don’t flock ‘round like bees;
For she ain’t no grim destroyer,
No dark terror or the seas.
And there ain’t a load of romance
To the guy that doesn’t know,
When the icy northers blow.

But men that sail the ocean
In a wormy, rotten craft,
When the sea ahead is mountains
With a hell-blown gale abaft;
When the mainmast cracks and topples
And she’s lurching in the trough,
Them’s the guys that greet the “Cutter”
With the smiles that won’t come off.

When the old storm signal’s flyin’,
Every vessel seeks a lee,
‘Cept the “Cutter,” which ups anchor
And goes ploughing out to sea,
When the hurricane’s a-blown’
From the Banks of old Cape Cod
Oh, the “Cutter,” with her searchlight,
Seems the messenger of God.

Bill Doherty
