WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE: "The Master, the Swabber..."

"The Master, the Swabber..."

(From "The Tempest")
The master, the swabber, the boatswain, and I,
    The gunner, and his mate,
Loved Mall, Meg, and Marian, and Margery,
    But none of us cared for Kate;
    For she has a tongue with a tang,
    Would cry to a sailor, Go hang!
She loved not the savour of tar nor of pitch;
Yet a tailor might scratch her where’er she did itch.
    Then, to sea, boys, and let her go hang!
