1-1-59 0000 Listen my children and you shall hear

the midnight song of a DER

Who commences another glorious year

of preventing another nefarious war,

Steaming alone in the gray North Pacific

on Station AP to be more specific.

 

We steam the endless Pacific blue

with our equipment lectronic.

Speed nine knots on 170 true

we search for a sub or supersonic

contact which could turn out to be

a foe intent pon nuclear delivery.

 

Our watch party watches an endless expanse

of stormy seas and sky and such

and dreams of the parties, the drink and the dance,

that those at home will enjoy so much,

and check our conditions of BAKER and FOUR,

that they may enjoy those parties the more.

 

It makes things seem a little bit rough

to while away the New Years Eve

patrolling nearly normal to the trough

in accordance with, I believe

ComBarPacs msg sent in December

at 180052Z if I remember.

 

So with propriety and sobriety,

we have met the brave New Year,

with each man in our society

strong to protect those he holds dear,

and each individual in his way

the threat of war seeks to allay.

 

This is the tale I had to tell

of a midnight ride through a midnight hell,

of men who go down in ships to the sea,

to help to keep a free people free.

This is the song of a DER

POTESTAS VIGILIAS in peace and war.

 

P.S. To liven up the watch a bit and travel with the sea,

we changed to 340 at a quarter after three.
