I Still Gets Excited By Snow
I still gets excited by snow
(Immature for a pirate, I know)
When I climbs out on deck
There's snow up to me neck
As me shipmates all cower below.
I cannot conceal me delight
When I wakes to a flurry of white
So piratin's banned
Let's get them cannons manned
And have the world's best snowball fight.
Lesser pirates do not think this way
When I scream "Let's go out and play!"
They cry "Split me gizzard!
We're caught in a blizzard!"
But I hopes we're stuck 'ere all day.
We cannot go back to the quay
For icebergs abound in the sea
Though our rations are squalid
They've all frozen solid
So we'll 'ave stagnant ice pops for tea.
Me ship never looked quite so clean
Sparklin' white - it's pristine!
Me beard's stalactites
Have frozen me mites
Negatin' the necessity to preen
Mother nature knows how to inspire
See me snowman in pirate attire
For his nose: Human bone
His teeth - black as me own!
And buildin' him made me perspire.
Skyward bright sunshine appears
Confirmin' the worst of me fears
It will be such a bore
When the snow starts to thaw
And I hopes ye crew don't spot me tears.
The melt down engulfs me with dread
When an idea pops into me head:
Our next planned destination
Is some sunny nation
But we'll set course for Iceland instead!
