Bin' snifflin' 'nent th' hour o' 12
'pon high deck by me scurvy self
me soulless hearties, dogs o' scum
on lower decks a-flappin' gums

Me keg be dry;  I've downed me grog
me head's a-swirl wit' nowt but fog
me ticker's tight;  I'm sans me glow
tho' stoked up fer me tit-eyed beau

Th' horizon's bleak;  me warty toad
whose slimy self on me has growed
wit' bladed quill scribed clerihew
'n gabbered' wit' a tongue askew

Be cursed, yer nit off bearded buns
o' rottin' dead whale steeped in sun
this 'ere pirate yer beseech 
creep whence yer hail, yer vermin leech


For Nathan's contest.  I found myself "at sea" when jilted, hence I opted for pirate lingo.

    Love your pirate stuff. But, as I'm a sucker for praise, I'll probably read everything you've written. - Red

    oh, boy, did you use that thing at Google to do this? I remember when Debs did a pirate contest. I did not even attempt it! Good for you to try such a poem. So you are from Wilma's neck of the woods! You and WIlma are so modern speaking you both seem like americans to me!
