A Pirate’s Booty

Published by Lydia Richmond on

Last week was International Talk Like a Pirate Day. Having never actually participated in this celebratory and fun event, I thought I’d join in with my bloggy poetic friends for a link up.

Pirates are fun and festive, and Math Man and I even dressed up as pirates one Halloween with Sassy Pants as our young mate. We had a great time, I had awesome fake wig hair, and it was just a bunch of fun.

I know that in some areas, you can win yourself free donuts and more if you arrive at whatever restaturant dressed as and or speaking like a pirate.

I’ll have to settle for a poem, instead. Hope you enjoy!

A Pirate’s Booty

Ahoy, me hearty,
“Drink up!” I say.
A pirate’s life fer me!

Me lassies, me lads,
Ahoy! Cast away!
Me life ain’t all that bad.

Avast! The ship is sailing yon
to find the treasure at sea.

Don’t be a lubber, come join me now
as we search for the pirate’s booty!

Count me in. Do we get to make someone walk the plank?

Let’s all set sail and leave the landlubbers behind for treasure untold.
