A Funny Pirate Poem for Kids
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.
