Captain Me and Charli McGee

sailed our claw foot tub

on a green tile sea


We hunted Popcorn Pirates

by the light of the moon

while First mate Basil played us

a squeeze box tune


We danced a sailor’s Jig

and then a sailor's Reel

Walked a Formica plank

Ate a hard tack meal


We stole all their popcorn

and sent them to the deep

Mom flits through the door

And said it was time for sleep


So into our crypts

the three of us went

Us little vampires

Another night spent


In our dreams

tomorrow night’s planning

We’ll blast off for Mars

in a rocket we’ll be manning


Until then, we sleep by daylight

We aren’t like all the others

We are children of the night

Captain Me, Charli McGee and a puppy named Basil
