Poem of the Week 04

Pirate Pete

James Carter

 

Pirate Pete had a ship on the sea

had a fish for his tea

had a peg for a knee

and a tiny little parrot called . . . Polly

 

Pirate Pete had a book with a map

had a skull on his cap

had a cat on his lap

and another little parrot called . . . Dolly

 

Pirate Pete had a trunk full of treasure

had a belt made of leather

had a cap with a feather

and another little parrot called . . . Jolly

 

Pirate Pete had a patch on his eye

had a flag he would fly

had a plank way up high

and another little parrot called . . . Molly

 

So Pirate Pete

and the parrots four

they sailed the world

from shore to shore –

collecting gold

and gifts galore.

And that’s their tale –

there is no more!
