There once was a pirate from Antilles
That chased all the young beautiful fillies
To all a deception vow 
Carving of them on ships bow 
Lies brought doom, now lies in field of lilies

Antilles, fillies, and lillies - three wonderful rhyming words I have never used, I am pretty sure ANY of them. What a wonderful limerick, Eve!

Now you have three words to play with, I just looked up The Caribbeans and I need a smaller syllable word . Thank you for your constant support. Hugs
