A boy once said, “I will be the future Pirate King!”
Crossing seas, he gained a family under his wing.
They search for the ultimate haul,
Would they survive or would they fall?
Their names pass into legend for all to sing.
(shamelessly promoting my love for Monkey D. Luffy)
Those yummy cheesy beans and steak,
Grilled perfection better than cake.
But wait…what’s that churning?
All rumbling and turning.
A potty visit: the price for my mistake.
Once there was a busy room,
With no windows like a tomb.
I miss the daylight.
Save me from this plight!
Days repeat in endless doom.
I once spotted a fiery gaze,
Tripping me into a dizzy craze.
I blushed and stumbled,
Red-faced and humbled.
But the cat and I went separate ways.
Once there was a whitely ghost,
Who calmly cruised the wide coast.
Then arrived a cat.
Ginger, old, and fat.
They love watching the sea the most.
One fine morning a girl ran late,
She saw the train and hoped it’d wait.
She stretched for the door,
Foot stuck with a swore.
She felt a kick and cursed her fate.
A young woman walks into work,
Fuming because her boss is a jerk.
“Fetch me a coffee.”
“Someone, please help me.”
She poisons his drink with a smirk.
I watch a boy through the glass,
Plump, droll, and with little class.
He wiggles his nose,
His speech makes me doze,
I hope he passes like bad gas.
