Impossible bottle

Impossible bottle

Look at the ship in the bottle!
Sails standing tall, masts high,
floating on a sea of air and glass,
a mystery to the eye…

Look at the ship –
too big to fit through
the slim neck of the bottle.
Tell me how to
complete this impossible task.
Break it down, says the DJ.
Break. It. Down.
It’s the only way.

Look at the ship in the bottle…

    I could be the boring sensible person who told you how the impossible task of ship in a bottle was accomplished but that would ruin your metaphor ;0)

    Love the poem – hope you’re not feeling too swamped
