Caged Liberty - Torrential high seas dragged me to my knees

Torrential high seas dragged me to my knees

Ten tired tortoises
lying in the sun;
nine nice neighbours
helping everyone;
eight hasty hostesses
preparing toast for tea;
seven salty sailormen
sailing on the sae;
six savage sharks
all smimming through the deep;
five fluttering fireflies
where the moonbeams peep;
four fat foresters
chopping fine fir trees;
three thin thatchers
a'thatching in the breeze;
two tall tailors
sewing at a seam;
and one wild warrior,
very wild warrior,
bow and arrow warrior,
eating pink ice cream.
