Bucket list

Harry had a notion to bail out the ocean
so under the clouds he did stand with his bucket in his hand
And above the wash of the waves
he floated a confident voice that did boast, cajole and rejoice
I can get this done!
I can get this done!
In the light of the big blue sun
I’m the one who will get this done.

He set up the motion needed to bail out the ocean
Harry had a notion to bail out the ocean
But with his toes he could feel the relinquishing sand
with his hand he could feel the diminishing land
and in the course of time the realization settled in his mind
I cannot bail out the ocean
I cannot empty the sea
This work only lends itself the airs of nobility.
