There was an old pirate named Greg

Who found a big hole in his keg

With no time remaining

And rum quickly draining

He plugged it with his wooden leg

Now, normally Greg would not balk

But this placed a limp in his walk

Yet each one of his mates

Felt it planned by the fates

That both ship and captain ... should rock.

Hi Greg. Seems we were both on the same wavelength! My last line came to me first and working backwards, Greg and keg were no-brainers! I applaud you for taking on the double challenge, but to be honest, your first verse alone was already a winner for me! Best wishes Wendy
