Going Down The Drain
My journey started in the tub,
I was slick with soapy foam.
So slick I slithered down the drain,
leaving suddenly my home.
Down twisting pipe I quickly slid,
almost like a water slide.
The pipe then ended in the sea,
I was swept out by high tide.
A pirate boat just happened by,
I was hauled aboard the ship.
So now I’m with a rowdy crew,
going on a long sea trip.
Each day I must attend a class
at the Pirate Trainee School.
This week in math I'll count gold coins –
school has never been so cool.
