    Default Pirate Poems - Just For Fun

    My son Jack (he's 5) has been really into children's poems lately. Not the fluffy stuff, but the kind written by Shel Silverstein, Roald Dahl and others. Jack especially likes the pirate poems (like this one) so we've been working on a few of our own. They're nothing too special, just some fun poems for the gCaptain members with small kids.

    And they are both a work in progress... so feel free to suggest changes to the poems or add your own. Just keep in mind they are meant for small kids

    I want to be a pirate... I think

    I want to be a pirate
    I want to be the pirate Dread
    And wear skulls and crossbones on my head
    With a scar on my eye
    My rivals shall die
    But with a wink and a blink
    It will end as I think
    I'd rather be home eating pie

    The Pirate Dentist


    A pirate I always wanted to be
    A pirate on the high seas
    But a dentist I was
    And the closest I came
    was hearing the patient's owweees

    A ship, A ship... in sailed a ship
    Had my wishes finally came true?
    Yes, I'd join the crew
    but the pirates life wasn't for me
    No I should never have left for the sea


    If you're going to be a pirate
    As a lookout you'll want to go
    For you might fall from the mast
    from a cannon ball's blast
    But you'll be loved when you say Land-HO

    If you're going to be a pirate
    Be a cook with an anchor tattoo
    For you'll be off the deck
    and never risk your neck
    Unless the crew thinks your food tastes like poo

    If you're going to be a pirate
    you'll want to be an AB
    for you'll get many breaks
    and eat the hotcakes
    and you'll never be lonely

    If your going to be a pirate
    a Captain you'll want to be
    you'll give orders all day
    as you lounge on some hay
    and with no one you'll have to agree.

    But never go as a dentist
    A dentist you don't want to be
    For no pirates brush
    and no pirates floss
    neither above nor under the sea

    So I write this in mourning and as a stern warning
    For the Captain today said his teeth where ok
    But this just wasn't true, his teeth where askew
    And where rotting and filled with decay

    Oh my, oh my what to say?
    His teeth really looked like puree.

    So I sat him down in my chair
    and began the repair
    but with the first yank
    I was sent to the plank
    and I died with little fanfare

    I worked as Purser on a restored passenger ship called the Balmoral( part of the Waverley paddlesteamer preservation society) and here is my poem from then called

    No Refunds
    The wind has started turning as you sail across the sea,
    Your stomaches started churning, whete is the lavatory?
    You wish you now had stayed at home taking your friend's advice.
    But you can't tell a landlaubber that cos you thought it would be nice.
    So when you're leaning over the side and feeling rather faint
    Spare a thought for our ships crew, please miss the fresh white paint!
    And when you're half way through your cruise and find you cannot stick it
    Don't blame us on the Balmoral....
    It wasn't us who bought your ticket!

    Pete The Wannabe (as emailed to me)

    He's Pete, the pirate wannabe.
    He'll sail the seas someday.
    But, first, he needs a little cash
    to help him on his way.

    He can't afford a parrot.
    He can't afford a plank.
    A peg leg's much too pricey,
    and a ship would break the bank.

    He cannot buy an eye patch.
    He hasn't got a hat.
    He'll never own a blunderbuss;
    he's much too broke for that.

    A dagger's too expensive.
    He couldn't swing a sword.
    In fact, there's only one thing
    he's been able to afford.

    His shopping list is lengthy,
    with loads of pirate gear,
    but all he has are earrings
    since they're just a buck an ear.
    i take it you're not a golfer

    Never heard that one before. And haven't figured this out yet. Apologies for reposting.
