The love ScaRred Pirate

I licked a pot of gold, it turned my tongue yellow
So I cut off my tongue, sold it and bought a yacht.

I saw a diamond mine, it made my eyes sparkle
So i gauged out my eyes and placed them in a ring

I listened to a song about a genie, it made me covetous
So I chopped off my ears, rubbed them and wished for love

I smelled a loaf baking, it made me hungry
I went to lick my lips but my tongue was missing

I touched the heart of someone who loved me, I couldn’t sense it
So I put on my ring and sailed away in silence.

    Louise Such a different and unique write. Creative and interesting. Now you will learn not to chop things off your body. LOL Thank you for the sweet comment on my Rays Of Light poem.
