Arrr - A Pirate's Poem

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

Pirate's Poem

Pirate's Poem

Arrr! Pass me some rum and get me ma sword

For today we will capture a ship and throw men overboard

We will commandeer their ships and take all the gold

Come now you bag of dirty scoundrels pirates are bold

Rise da sails and let the skull and bones drive fear

But keep the British flag handy to disguise our ship ya hear?

Row you pig suckers, row or I feed yah to the sharks!

Are you Pirates or Pretty dresses I ask? Arrr!

There is gonna be attacking and fighting and I don't intend to loose

After ma victory I will laugh and dance while sipping on booze

Row you dwindling half dead walking corpses!

Row, we have water to cover you broken old horses!

Give me that there looking glass. Ha Haa! Ship up yonder

Time to loot shoot and plunder

Oh my. looks like a pretty little ship belonging to the queen

We simple have to be gentlemen and never to be mean.

May be if we are nice she will invite us for cookies and tea.

And pardon our crimes and give us the Castle key

Look at you dumb brainless fools shaking yah heads in agree!

Load up the canons, Sharpen the blades, I want this over before Salmagundi

I assure you old hogs, after this loot we will live richly

There she be, such a beautiful ship to destroy

But Arrr I say, Time for war!
