Tip of the Sword



Tip of the Sword




Soon to lay our girl to rest,
this Great Grey Lady is among the best.


We make our rounds of the open sea,
to protect our freedom from the enemy.


If she's called to defend our land,
we know she'll do it with the men at hand.


We'll admire our girl long after she's moored,
and remember her as the Tip of the Sword!



~ Eric "Elf" Fleming
