It’s Thursday and that means it’s also time to participate in Poetic Thursday with Pam, Teddy and Angel Sammy over at Two Spoiled Cats.
To celebrate today being “Talk Like A Pirate Day”, this is the photo inspiration for today’s poem, provided by Pam and the boys last Thursday.
And here is my poem:
Known as a menace wherever he sails,
he’s only trouble and tough as nails.
Heartless and cruel, it’s all part of the job;
always in search of someone to rob.
No vessel’s his friend, just potential prey,
but when the storms rage, he’s as cautious as they.
So the lighthouse stands as a welcome sight,
and guides them all with its impartial light.
Come on over to Pam’s blog to read other “pirate” poems. Aargh….
~These Days Of Mine~
I love this
Terrible Ted the Pirate and I think you did a grand job with your poem for Talk Like A Pirate Day. I’m so glad you are writing poetry with us every week – isn’t it FUN?! Hope you capture a couple of pirate ships while you’re out and about today – enjoy the treasure!
Great poem – loved the impartiality of the Light House. But isn’t curious how some stories/movies paint the pirate as a romantic character that tries to pull us in to cheer for him? He’s definitely Terrible Ted though!!!
Ooh… is Halloween on the way, or what ? ; ) my favorite line is “but when the storms rage, he’s as cautious as they.” it reminds me of Garfield’s Halloween Adventure, where he and Odie have to go up against some pirate ghosts … it used to air after The Great Pumpkin, but for some reason the networks have forgotten about it ??
Love it!! You are good at this, Dianna. Keep it up, i so enjoy reading them. Good work.
Well, me matey, you’ve given us a fine rhyme. There will be no walkin’ the gangplank for ya. (I’m trying to talk like a pirate.) 😉
