Vikings

Vikings

equipped
brawny vessels
peatmoss

to ship fish
as nourishment

squelching hunger’s
prevalent demands

during months
weathering
turbulent trips.

Freed of weed seeds,
pathogens,
pests

absorbing water
20 times its weight
peatmoss’s presence
survives preservation’s test:

caught fish stank less.

Ranked high
“as natural biological resources”

environmental,
social
economic values

of peatlands
sustained

humankind

as thirst-quenching
reigns–

principled pearls
preserving

morals

fishers-of-men
find

‘truth-seekers’

riding
clinker-built
faith

maintained

as precious
corals.
