    Barbara. I adored the humor of yours. The second line doesn't quite match the meter of line one. Other than that, perfection!!! And congratulations.

    So I guess this was one of those morally upright pirates that allowed no cursing :). A non cursing parrot is good for the soup ( pun intended)
