Somnambulist to Starboard

Never doze with this lout on a trip
In repose, he spreads out on the ship
Though he isn't awake
Harpo's still on the make
And so's his redoubtable grip.

Harpo gropes his way through the stateroom scene in A Night at the Opera (Sam Wood, 1935). Title by bored-to-sleep David Cairns.
