Shadowfall - Polly on the Shore 
(Traditional)

Hindsight is a wonderful thing. Resigned to the realisation that he is certainly about to die after a disastrous sea battle, the protagonist, yet again, rues the fact that he should really have listened to his sweetheart, Polly, and stayed safely at home rather than fall into bad company and himself be pressed into service on board a man-o-war, carried along on the wave (sorry about the pun) of jingoism.
