A short and fun little poem for just the fun of it.


My name is Blackfoot Bittleton

I'm a scurvy pirate and a son of a gun

I scuttle ships just for fun

While riding the seven seas.

 

My Pappy taught me all that he knew

And my dear old Mammy was a pirate too.

I was raised on ale and dumping stew

Seasoned with an ocean breeze.

 

There was nary a wench to ketch my eye

Except the daughter of Captain Blye.

Her fiery spirit and that Banshee's cry

Were too much for a man of the sea.

 

So I ran like a rabbit, for the devil's sake,

But she's relentless and as mean as a snake

And I was well aware of what was at stake

Should that woman get hold of me.

 

***

 

My name is Blackfoot Bittleton

I'm a scurvy pirate and so is my son

We'll sail the seas 'til our days are done

With my She-devil wife, as Captain.
