Heres one you all might like.

Once upon a time there was a famous sea captain.  This captain was very
successful at what he did.  For years he guided merchant ships all over the
world and never did stormy seas or pirates get the best of him.  he was admired
by his crew all other captains because of his great record.

However, there was one thing different about this captain.  Every morning he went
through a strange ritual. He would lock himself in his cabin and open a small seachest.  In this chest was a piece of paper that the captain would stare at for a minute.  He would then lock the chest back up and go about his daily duties of running his ship and crew.

For year this went on, and his crew became very curious.  Was it a treasure map?
was it a letter or poem from a lost love?  Or perhaps a favorite quote from the bible.  Everyone speculated about the contents of the strange envelope.

Sadly, one day the captain died at sea in his sleep.  After laying the captain's body to rest. The first mate led the entire crew into the captian's quarters, and he opened the chest, got the envelope, opened it and....

The first mate turned very pale and showed the paper to the rest of the crew
the paper had two lines written on it.  two words per line:

"Port:"          LEFT
"Starboard:"  RIGHT
