GABBERIN'

Jes' a rollin' chinwag
in th' tongue o' sea scallywags
th' piratin' yarn tha' ne'er did birth
no' fanciful, nor folly
jes' stew'd up prob'ly
neithe' aimin' fer side-splittin' mirth

Tharrr be nary no Cap'n
me gums be a-flappin' 
th' kinfolk in verse ter regale 
'tis no genius at play 
th' scribe o' yon day 
be feath'rin' a no'sensical tale

    Delysia, wow! I can't believe I forgot to thank you for the nice and silly poem you entered in my contest. A late late late CONGRATULATIONS. Thank you for the smirks and smiles your poem gave me while reading it. Hope you can forgive me, it is not like me to stoop low and diss all who support me or my contest. Even if I get no response, everyone still matters, and I try my best... Love love LINDA...

    Nonsensical maybe, but cute and fun. Great job with the dialect. Thanks for reading and commenting on my feeble attempt at humor. Love, Joyce

    I love it!! It reminds me of D.H. Lawrence's attempts at dialect. I think I've just about got it figured out! Best wishes, Keith

    This is a cool mood you create with this one. Makes me think of the main Character in Deloris Claiborne by Stephen King.
