New Poem: "The Maze Belowdecks"

"The Maze Belowdecks" is the next installment in my poetic odyssey, A Wave of Poetry.  I was born without a sense of direction.  So, the situation belowdecks on the Abraham Lincoln, with its maze of identical looking passageways, was an absolute nightmare for me.  I would be a ghost wandering lost on the ship to this day were it not for a notebook that I kept for jotting down landmarks.  This notebook survived my adventures, and the elaborate directions to the officer's mess that I wrote for myself make for an interesting poem as written.
