Victory at Sea

Taos kitchen scene

Title courtesy Dept. of Obscure Cultural References. Art work by T. Farr.

I‘m Popeye the Sailor Man
I’m Popeye the Sailor Man
I’m strong to the finich, cause I eats me spinach
I’m Popeye the Sailor Man

I’m one tough Gazookus, which hates all Palookas
Wot ain’t on the up and square
I biffs ’em and buffs ’em and always out roughs ’em
but none of ’em gets nowhere

If anyone dares to risk my “Fisk”
It’s “Boff” an’ it’s “Wham” un’erstan’?
So keep “Good Be-hav-or”, That’s your one life saver
With Popeye the Sailor Man

I’m Popeye the Sailor Man
I’m Popeye the Sailor Man
I’m strong to the finich, cause I eats me spinach
I’m Popeye the Sailor Man

John Hamilton Farr lives in Taos, New Mexico, U.S.A. with his classical pianist wife. “Possibly the only place I can get away with this,” he says. As New York Times best-selling author James C. Moore (Bush’s Brain) put it in a review of John’s first book, Buffalo Lights is the work of a man attuned to the world who sees it differently than you and I and writes about it with a language and a vision of life that is impossible to ignore.” John is the author of BUFFALO LIGHTS, TAOS SOUL, ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE, and THE HELEN CHRONICLES. He has been publishing online since 1996 (Zoo Zone, Farr Site, MacFaust, GRACK!, FarrFeed) and blogs regularly here at JHFARR.COM.
