Seaman's Bars of the World (Poem)

I hope you like these, and many thanks to everybody that sent them in. But if you know of any more please let me know.

There are still a few gaps; East coast of the States, west coast of south America, apart from Valparaiso. Spain, Russia, still very few from the Mediterranean as well.
