The Cookie Pirate

This poem is for Project OpenBook, a community-built children’s book. Details below.

The sharks look hungry.
And them seas arrrrrrr’ freezin’.
But this be the penalty
When yer guilty o’ treason.

Where me cookies once were
Sits a sad empty bag.
And yer chocolaty chin proves
Yer’ the skallywag.

Don’t blame Cap’n Barbie.
I’m not takin’ the bait.
She doesn’t eat cookies
For she’s watchin’ her weight.

Aargh! Shiver me timbers!
Start walkin’ that plank!
Me ship’s no place for cookie thieves…
We throw ‘em in the tank.
