Treasure Island

A Pirates Life


when I was as young I ended my first romance
walking into the sea
walking out of the sea

benbow roving
bell bow wrenching
at company with life living freemen
never ending pirates
pirates pages
pirate type

Away to sailors Main
tall and a master
billows
splinters
gurdy fiddles

lost my yester clothes to a garb silk voyager
indigo magnifico
napes a noodle

cabin over the head
head on the spit
spit in the eye

rolling 'rahing
hanging peg patch
Hook and captain Hand

all gentlemen in dogs
looking like a poor cat artists chalky

all gentlemen in drakes
seven quests for Freuds Fiends and Enemies
who insulted his saintly mother and made him dream of beetles

made him bug to ventures
crew dentist, cake baker and window makers in a crack carrack galleass
passing from the ungunned kings ship Tubby Worry
modernized to private enterprise and criminalities
good ship 'Bonny Bloody and more Bloody'
just call it the Bloody
some thrill in saying the ship!
walk the deck saying the ship!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
