Today I woke up to this.
I headed down to investigate.
We’re piling into shuttles to tourist destinations, people from the ship told me.
The Azura seemed in no hurry to budge.
I waited a few hours. This was my view at lunch.
Finally I had enough. I went down and spoke to the men in charge.
Get your rust-bucket outta my face, I told them.
They relayed my message to the guy at the front who casts off the giant ropes.
Take your time coming back, Azura.
But now the damn navy’s moved in.
