Piratic Poetry

Postby DaveL on Mon Sep 01, 2008 5:43 am

YArrrrr...

Ahoy there budding B-arrrrds and B-arrrrdettes. Life on the high seas is an awe inspiring past time. The exploits of the Buccanear have been embodied in the literary arts. Now here's ye chance to write some of yer most excitin prose.

* Have ye ever been to Madame Fifi's and had the hinsperashun to wax lyrical about that 'back rub' ye got?
* Have yer ever had trubbles understandin where all the Pirates are in Shakespeare?
* Did yer ever get the feelin if yer didn't get belted on the head and ship-napped, that ye had a career in the literary arts loomin?

Well now here's yer chance to show us yer creative wares, yer flea bitten scruffy, seagull dropping!

Yarrr to start the proceedins Oi though O'id write a poem entitled The Mermaids Tale (chortle chortle!)
This is what happens when yer take yer hallucinatin too far!

Arvast in the sands of time...
Did me me ship sail the dark Carribbean Waters...
And in the mists afar I did spy a vision...
a vision that got this old blaggard most excited...

For there, sittin on a rock was summit worthy of PlayBilge page 3...
A vision lovelier than me dear wife, I haven't seen for 30 years...
For her tail was long, her skin was soft and her eyes were big and dark...
It was the hottest, sexiest sight Oi ever did see...A Dugong!!

And I did propose to that Dugong on the rocks that day...
And she offer me her flipper in marriage...
And we have built our home on a large granite boulder...
And we have many baby dugongs and dugongettes...
Complete with eye patches, prosthetic hooks and peg fins...

And she loves my moustache and I love hers...
And she loves to go shopping for kelp, occasionally kelp and (when she's feeling naughty) kelp!
And after a hard day at the office pillaging and murdering...
My Lovely Mermaid awaits...

There once was a fine wench from Dover
With a soft spot for an old sea rover
Her name was Big Nancy
And if you tickled her fancy
She'd give ye a roll in the clover
The smoke wafted gently in the breeze across the poop deck and all seemed right in the world.

In me life at sea, I's sailed the world,
I's seen all manner o' things.
I's seen a mermaid's rump, I's seen a starfish jump,
I's seen an octopus with wings.

I's seen seaweed dance, and sharks that prance,
I's heard a singing pig.
But there'll always be, one thing I'll never see,
Plank wearing a decent wig.

Tharr once was an ol' fella from Tortuga.
He was as big and as woide as a beluga.
Hungry for flounder,
He went on a bender,
And fell in the cookpot to die.
A flap of the wings yesterday means big changes tomorrow.
Let's work together to keep the present inevitable.

So yeah, I went and got a blog.

Ye puts yer left leg in
Ye puts yer left leg out
In Out
In Out
Ye Shake it all about
Ye can't put your right leg in cos a shark ate it four year ago.

Oooo Lala!

Madame Fifi once gave me a back rub, in place the wasn't my back...
She used both hands, a goat, a spatula and a rather large Hessian sack...

When it look like she had finished, Oi let out a rather big scream...
Because next came the hot wax, anchovies and large container of cream...

When she was done with the foodstuffs, I thought Oi was on me way out...
But next thing Oi was on all fours, being beaten with a giant smoked trout...

Oi said 'thanks that'll do now, there be no food left in your house'...
But Fifi sent two of her girls out, to get a big bucket of louse...

And if yer hungry don't bother, because the food that looks quite a treat...
Will most likely, without question, end up on yer head, back and feet...

While the third world gets poorer and the townsfolk starves away...
Madame Fifi will be out in the Chamber, entertaining the night life's bad strays...

But the young ones is me darlins'
Aaarrrrgggh!

Argh.

There was a young man from Nantucket
On his way back from Thailand and Phuket
He encountered a storm
On his way round the Horn
And his lunch ended up in a bucket
The smoke wafted gently in the breeze across the poop deck and all seemed right in the world.
