Plunging Paddles

Plunging paddles
Rotating shafts
Engine revving
drives the craft

Propellor blades screw
through green water
tumbled froth
astern’s disorder.

Wake mounds out,
taper off,
rocking vessels
tug on moorings.

Plunging paddles
drive the craft
war cries chant.

As one they strike
with paddles strive
Wakes symmetric lines astern.
