Pirate Ship

Captain Sally, where to next?

"Avast, we set upon a lethal course

Across the yonder tarmac sea

To plunder sweets, from my daddy!"


"Avast! A landlubber, with a 20p!"

"Can I have a go?"

"For your doubloons, first mate you'll be!

Come sail, for fine sugared booty!"


"Sally, now, it's time to go.

The shopping's done."

"Shiver me timbers! The kraken has come!"

"Enough, that's no way to speak to your mum!"


Thus Sally's time of adventures had passed

Captain Sally may have lost her plastic ship

The kraken's cruel arms pulling her from the mast

But sugared booty she had at the end of her trip.

The End
