What if a pirate I could be?

98-02-february-1st-2015

If a pirate I could be, I’d sail the salty sea

Tossing to and fro until the lookout yells land-ho

We’d make our way aground to see what could be found

Entering the local village to plunder and to pillage

Tales are always told about a treasure chest of gold

But a pirate’s life is gritty and anything but pretty

I could make you walk the plank just for saying I stank

You landlubbiin swine, maybe I’ll take your wine

Rough you up for fun then finish with a pint of rum

The places I would go, the people I would know

If only I could be, it’d be a pirate’s life for me!


Written for the Sunday Photo Fiction Prompt and inspired by the photo above.

  1. Great use of the photo prompt – and I love the flow of the poem! it’s just so spirited and free – makes me want to toss my cookies and head for the open sea 😉
