August 2012, Navy Museum, Lisbon 

We wrapped them all in a mainsail tight
with twice ten turns of a hawser's bight
And we heaved them over and out of sight
with a yo-heave-ho and a fare-ye-well
and a sudden plunge in the sullen swell,
ten fathoms deep on the road to hell
Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum
~ Abney Park, "The Derelict"
