A Pirate's Life For Me

I hoped to strike silver

With my calcium-crusted 

Shovels

Inside of a king's cake on the 

Table.

Instead I became a diver

Finally finding Blackbeard's 

Mystery.

 

Jewels; pearl necklaces; gold coins!

All these and more. Under this

Tiny red-shingled roof

A treasure was hid!

 

I always see the fishermen in

Their green rubber boots

Slumbering by their bobbing rods; 

But i never saw a bait box. 

 

Is it I then? They bait me

With the hidden riches 

Of their past legacy

To understand the unknown;

to drown on jewels of old yore!
