Talk Like a Pirate Day (poem)

Shiver me timbers, how could it be?

Missed me day, ’twas out at sea…

Worry ye not fer I came just to blather,

Come over closer or not if ye’d rather…

Nary came back, twas a treacherous gale,

Broke down me mast and ripped through me sail…

Me crew and me thought we’d bested the harm,

When up from the depths came a beast with eight arms…

Grabbed hold o’me deck, took a sailor or two,

Then slipped back away, back into the blue…

Tis not just a yarn, I be tellin it true,

Ye be careful out there, or might be it gets you!

I hope no-one else missed that yesterday was Talk Like A Pirate Day! Anyway, I hope you liked this poem. I still can’t believe the day slipped by me. I had fun with it last year and again just now. Maybe I have an infatuation with yon pirate talk. (Looking forward to next year!)

Thanks to dimitrisvetsikas1969 for the ship image.
