A Pirate's Tale
Congratulations Donna on your 100th post! It is to you I dedicate the following:
There once was a Scottish lass
Who ventured off to sea
For she knew from an early age,
A pirate she would be.
So she sailed on a ship named 'The Bonne Lass'
Across the seven seas
Plundering treasure and capturing the hearts,
Of many a pirate that be.
When alas one day on a warf at Tortuga
Her eyes did meet and breath did sigh
For the pirate Johnny, stood he
With his rum laden kiss and manly scent he took her heart you see,
And off they sailed on his ship together
Named 'My Lass Come Away With Me'...
For many a year there was silence,
But for their tale of treasure
For those two hearts united, made
Taking Spanish gold their pleasure.
And on a windswept day
Out on Buzzard's Bay
Heartbroken Johnny, they did find.
And the tale of his Scottish lass
Forsaken, she had left him behind.
For that wench with the golden tresses
Had sailed off you see
With her man at her side, holding the wheel
On the ship named the 'Bonne Glee'.
She was off into the sunset, with the pirate Connery.
