Loud shouts of excited “Eurekas”
were heard from a group of U.S. treasure seekers
when into the sea off Portugal they made repeated jumps
in the hopes that they would come up trumps.
They discovered 17 tons of coins of silver and gold
stashed in the wreck of a sunken Spanish galleon’s hold.
The finders decided to Florida their haul remove
confident their lives would soon improve.
