Poet the Pirate’s Outrageous Poem


Yo ho, me mateys, have I a tale,

Lean back n’grab ye some rum or ale…

It shan’t take long, I’ll be right smart,

Arrr, here we go, me’s at the start…

T’were quite the night, on the briny deep,

Them waves been rough, we’d not had sleep…


From somewhere right close, we heard quite a tune,

So we searched aft and bow by the light o’the moon…

Twas Petey wot saw them, ‘Oh Blimey’ he cried,

And mere seconds later the rest of us spied…


Fer out in the sea, swam there three gorgeous ladies,

They sang and they giggled, then waved at us mateys…

We couldn’t believe it, of us they weren’t scared,

In circles they swam, as we stood there and stared…


The oldest she winked, an took over o’me heart,

I nearly dove in, as my sense did depart…

But left us, they did, swam away from our sails,

Then just be’fer divin, they waved with their tails…

A night doesn’t pass, where they stay from my mind,

If ye happen upon them, I do hope you’ll be kind.

Signed, Yours Truly, Poet
