Christmas in Lisbon (1974)

The day before Christmas the Atlantic was in a frenzy
it was with relief when we turned starboard and met
the softer water of Tagus.

We birthed far from town, on a double Decker Bus 
I had bumpy drive into town. I good meal and wine,
just sting sitting there reading newspapers.

Rang my wife to hear a friendly voice, she asked if I
was drunk since I sounded so chirpy. Put down the phone
Drank some more wine and aimlessly walked about.

Picked up an cushy prostitute, needed a warm body
next to mine, In the morning I took a taxi back and
a new long, laborious shipboard day began.
