Ballad Of Fisher's Boarding-House

"Ballad Of Fisher’s Boarding-House"

by Rudyard Kipling


That night, when through the mooring-chains
      The wide-eyed corpse rolled free,
To blunder down by Garden Reach
      And rot at Kedgeree,
The tale the Hughli told the shoal
      The lean shoal told to me.


‘TWAS Fultah Fisher’s boarding-house,
      Where sailor-men reside,
And there were men of all the ports
      From Mississip to Clyde,
And regally they spat and smoked,
      And fearsomely they lied.

They lied about the purple Sea
      That gave them scanty bread,
They lied about the Earth beneath,
      The Heavens overhead,
For they had looked too often on
      Black rum when that was red.

They told their tales of wreck and wrong,
      Of shame and lust and fraud,
They backed their toughest statements with
      The Brimstone of the Lord,
And crackling oaths went to and fro
      Across the fist-banged board.

And there was Hans the blue-eyed Dane,
      Bull-throated, bare of arm,
Who carried on his hairy chest
      The maid Ultruda’s charm—
The little silver crucifix
      That keeps a man from harm.

New TV Forum post: CBS launching online 24-hour news channel (The Newsroom)

I think this was a fantastic way for CBS news to monetize their top-notch content without a huge output of funds to build a fancy set or hire loads of anchors and such. Utilize what you already have. Whilst I’m not hughly impressed with all of the “decorative” elements of the newsroom set, i like the “down and dirty” feel of it. I’d like to see how it performs during a big breaking story. I wonder if they will simply take the feed from their affiliate (if its a US story)? Currently CBS has a … (Latest post by Mouseboy33)
