Poetic Thursday: Pirates

Today on Poetic Thursday, we’re celebrating “Talk Like A Pirate” Day. I’m joining Pam and her boys at Two Spoiled Cats today as we share poetry inspired by this photo.

Here’s my poem:


That long, wild hair and evil eye;
no one can explain it, no one knows why.

Surrounding him, there’s a certain mystique,
in spite of that obvious menacing streak.

His bad boy charm draws women near,
while men avoid him and live in fear.

Wait….can women be pirates? I can’t say.
If so, that ‘mystique’ would work both ways.
