cat and mouse game in a Shakespearean Sonnet
Stand by! Anchors aweigh, my mates!
We leave our homes and families,
because our destiny awaits
out there upon the Seven Seas.

Man your stations! Anchors aweigh!
We'll roam across the raging sea
and try to find elusive prey
on quest to keep our nation free.

In search of hostile submarine,
we sail the bounding main, until
a pulsing blip on sonar screen
sparks the crew's rush to battle drill,

engaging enemy below
'til one delivers crippling blow.
