Whats your opinion?

Whats your opinion?
On the Old Santa Fe resource page, Benet Davetian does an analysis of Mr. Fenn and the poem. Mr. Davetian says that some of the lines in the poem are (sayings) and some of the lines are (plays on words). I haven't seen anything that I recognize as a (saying) or any (plays on words), What do you think?

Thank's Count, Yes, I forgot about (paddle up your creek). for plays on words, I see (tarry scant) to linger shortly, or (tarry scant) a black slab of rock. Also (new and old) which would typically be, (old and new).

Have you dug real deep into the "There'll be no paddle up your creek" phrase. Go all the way back. Should find at least two very interesting statements about it.

Hi, James, I never found anything in history on the comment. Uses came, but after FF made it famous. Good luck.

Based on nearby words, the "heavy loads and water high" might be hinting at a certain kind of pounds and marks (the paper kind).

Hi NC, Water marks could go with the title idea, (the place has a name), or with (letters of mark) granting the right to piracy. Mr. Fenn did mention Captain Kid.
