Our September 2019 Winner: Dave Heffernan!

Not gonna happen tonight

While the swim-guzzlers take flight
A storm is approaching and jellies encroaching
On this most ominous night
The captain could not spare a verse,
A refusal defiant and terse.
His poem left unspoken, 'tis only a token,
While his beer he fondly did nurse.
