Limerick: Once Buoyed Anchors In Sea Anne-Anne - Poem by T Wignesan

Once buoyed Anchors in Sea Anne-Anne
Looked like they needed maning by Man
One said: « Whatever it be!
Got'em all covered, see! »
Didn't see at Sea thrive but Merman.

    needed maning/manning corr. My interpretation is that the buoys were managed by mermen
    Stirs the imagination. Am I correct?

    You have a keen eye for detail. How right you are! Manning's what is meant in the maritime context. I'll have to correct the spelling. Here, too, there's the possibility of extending the meaning into other spheres of connotation of the same word, though I'd rather not, in the sense of covering it up. In any case the quotation is a favorite one with Sea Anne-Anne (one in particular) girls about not letting anything slip out of their ken. Once again, bravo! and many thanks for taking the trouble to dig deeper than most would. Cheers! Thanks! Every good wish. Wignesan
