Default Verse or worse?

It seems the reply to my earlier question
Disappeared in the cloud without trace,
An unfortunate victim of web indigestion
Or gremlins in deep cyberspace.

So fairness and justice would seem to compel me
To temper my earlier blame,
For the company’s subsequent actions now tell me
That Sailor do value their name.

They’ve sent me a handset by overnight mail,
Which I’ll soon be installing aboard;
A satisfied customer, happy to sail
With my faith in the product restored.

I shrink from comparing my own humble scribbling
With a poet of far greater note,
But it’s good to acknowledge an end to the quibbling:
‘All’s well that ends well’, as he wrote.

Good job. Any more verse you pen on the sailing theme, please post them for our enjoyment.

"if at first you don't succeed....Redefine success"!
