On this fine and auspicious day when Captain Paul Watson has been welcomed back to the United States, there will no doubt be many celebrations and writings in his honor.  To that grand homecoming, I humbly offer the following form of tribute, which is one of my favorites, the limerick.

The World has a Captain named Paul

Who’s in it for the long haul.

He squashed the Red Notice,

And with Bob and the SCOTUS

Will end whaling once and for all.

Welcome home, Captain.
