Verse And Worse

Random Wit, Errant Rhyme. Not A Literary Crime

The pirates declared no one would be harmed
When the three-masted vessel became becalmed
They unhooked their peg legs and talked to their parrots
And they feasted on goulash made from stale carrots

Muthering Heights had it right the first time!..................And off they went, to savor the feast - of carrot and celery and a fine roasted beast.
Together they climbed the three masted boat, only to find they were no longer afloat. They had run aground on a tropical island, it might have been New Zealand or New York or Thailand....so they took to the shore with the parrot and waded....and waded and waded and waded and......waited. Why? Because they had not landed at Thailand but at another fine place. In a very long line at a very nice place. Good thing they had already bought tickets for Disneyland, online, just in case!

Then the pirates all felt numb
Someone brought out a case of rum
They then fell all over the place
Wanting to run a three legged race

I'm loving the pirate theme. The "unhooking their peg legs" is classic.

"Eee ghads" they all cried.."are we men or ferrets?!"

LOL

Nicely done David!
