Lily (White Bubble) - Pirate Poem
The sea outside was fierce and angry,
The storm was in command,
By the thud of clumsy footing,
I knew he was here and couldn't stand,
By the sputtering and muttering,
I knew it was time to start scuttering.
I knew what they wanted,
To rob me of my life,
In a blinded panic,
I failed to grab my knife,
From then I knew I stood no chance,
Anybody could tell that at first glance.
I marched through the lower decks,
I could smell is fear,
Where is he oh where is he,
His pizza deliveries here,
Why oh why did he make me come here,
To the middle of the sea,
Because boy the journey is pricey!
