A Pirates Tale (Not A Very Good Poem.) - Poem by Erica Francis

Yo ho, me hearties
A pirate be I.

I swabbin' the deck
for a cappin' who lie.

Yo ho, me hearties
Ye scurvey dogs, ho!

Ye walkin' the plank
For no'r'else t' go!

I sit and I rot in the galley all day
cookin' up stews of mice and of hay

Yo ho, me hearties
Fine strumpets, play I.

For no loved up lass
be forgettin' my cry.

Yo ho, me hearties
Hear yon' bell ring two

I hang from the gallows
for not else to do!

    Bad poem? Where? I see no bad poems here. I think this is very fun and lyrical. It could almost be a pirate shanty. It's quite good. (Report) Reply
