"Goodbye to the Nighthawk!"
Said Kordath with glee
As he stood at the dock
Glad to be home free.

"Goodbye to the Nighthawk!"
Said Kordath with glee
As he stood at the dock
Glad to be home free.

He glanced at the Captain
That stood in his place.
"Now I need a chaplain
For that time in space."

"You have all of your things?"
Asked the wise Sephi.
"I care not!" the Ryn sings,
"Now to go sight see!"

"Not so fast with you, Bleu."
Said Captain Rulvak.
Curiosity grew,
As the Ryn turned back.

"You forgot your grand stash,
Hidden very well.
It will now be MY cache,
My thirst, it will quell."

"Good find for you, my friend."
Bleu said with a grin.
"To you, I will commend
this very fine win!"
