Booty Call

Booty Call

Our Pirate Picnic Happy Hour
Began in a bar as dark and cold as a ship’s hold.
There, like stowaways, we drank grog
From a flask and ate old sea beasties on crackers.
When we invaded China, we spied treasures aplenty.
We drew our magic scabbard and stole exotic victuals from the natives;
We pounded our tankards together to toast and sing chanties.
Finally, me mateys carried our booty to a deserted spot on no man’s island.
We divided our treasure chest of wee gems and baubles
According to the law of the sea.
Thus did we celebrate happy hours in the pirate way.
