I'm a briny whore
wit' reekin' drawers
me honor ter make yer acquenchance
th' skipper's maid
me port's decayed
one doubloon, yer seafarin' urchin?

Yer scurvy rat
a-crawl wit' gnat
orf seadog scourged wit' rabid 
yer cannon's immense
'tis cocked 'n tense
yer cutlass be yearnin' me scabbard

Yer stench o' sewer
me bits'll chew yer
bumps 'n boils 'n rottin' flesh
yer britches singe
yer helm unhinge
ter boot yer hornpipe thump 'n thresh

    I enjoy this kind of stuff. It sounds to me highly creative. Rhyme thrown here and there makes the poem a lot out of this world. Thank you Shamwari. JM

    Highly entertaining stuff you composed tastefully to the reader's utter delight. Your wittiness shines through here my friend. I am impressed by your poem, so it was a good overall penmanship on the poetess part. Smiles :)

    Hello there you naughty sailor girl! Apologies for going "off the grid" but had to move back from Egypt and look for a new gig. (Still looking)...Missed you and again, APOLOGIES for staying gone so long. I'll try to do better and by the way...LOVE this scurvy bad-girl poem:) Cheerios "Matie," Terry

    They must have to drink a lot of ale to get into the mood. This one kinda grossed me out but was hilarious all the same. Ha ha I just noticed the Captcha starts with VD. Very fitting*lol*
