Sam squinted in a better effort to get a look at the face of the person. Unfortunately the attempt failed and left him with a minor headache.

"Can I help you?" Sam asked in hopes of learning who the person was by their voice.

"Maybe," the man replied.

Much to Sam's relief and discomfort it was a voice he didn't recognize.

Oh boy, Sam thought.
I was a sailor. I was born upon the tide and with the sea I did abide.
I sailed a schooner round the Horn to Mexico I went aloft and furled the mainsail in a blow.
And when the yards broke off they said that I got killed. But I am living still.
