Captain C. Waves cried out to the crew, “Watch out for that seagull !”, as overhead it flew. Very soon, the ship was under attack, Captain C. Waves tried to hide underneath a sack, but one by one the seagull droppings hit him with a WHACK ! Two of the ship’s crew head up the rig. Another went beneath deck, but the hole wasn’t that big ! Very soon, he was completely stuck like a hand in glove … And he was left stranded as another wave of seagulls attacked from above. One of the seagulls perched on the plank … And scared a shipmate so much, He dived in the sea and promptly sank ! Next a seagull landed on his head… He threw the ship’s anchor at it, which landed on the sea bed. Seagulls were coming at the ship from every angle, so Captain C. Waves head towards the Bermuda Triangle.
