In the olden days

They used maps and tables

An accurate time piece

And a sextant

They said things like

Red sky at night

Sailor's delight

Red sky at morning

Sailor take warning

They could shoot the stars

And dead reckon their way

Out of a tight spot

Now all we need

Is GPS and The Weather Channel

Might as well stay at home
