A Pirates Tale

A Pirate's Tale

Fishers fish and merchants drift
But pirates search and seek and sift
They show their wealth with coins they spit   
While honest men give honest gifts 

A fletcher rises with the day 
His arrows up and sailed away 
The hunters come, and simply say 
There's cheaper arrows at pirate-bay

The fletcher fletched to get the price 
To fetch a necklace for his wife 
But all those jewels were laid to rest
Beneath the dirt in pirate chests...

A pirate brings them back to air 
And gives them to a maiden fair 
He drinks, and thinks, and learns with time
Her necklace will not ever shine

    Heya Kyle, this is a very neat poem for sure. Especially enjoyed the tongue-twister feel of the 3rd stanza. Well Done.

    And a drum roll for perfection. Has all the ingredients for a movie - high adventure and the mystery men. Love it!
