The Swagger of a Pirate Queen


She had that arrogant all-knowing walk,
That warned pirates to get out of her way.
The walk that made mean women gossip,
The swagger of her womenfolk of May.

Captain, she came aboard the pirate ship,
With the swaggiest swag we had ever seen.
Nobody gave her even a bit of lip. 
She grabbed our gold treasure. She was a queen.

Captain, I would not have believed it myself,
But her swagger kept us from fighting her.
Women from May island, each aided by elf,
Captain, what could we do but bow and defer?

I loved this swagger poem and hope you get a high placement. I also wonder how you manage to write so many poems with two schools to take care of. Hugs.

One school pretty much runs itself without problems. I have lots of time in between the classes I teach, because the principal solves most of the problems and they go back to class immediately so guess what I use this time to do?
