Laura M Bailey hosts a weekly 3-way challenge called Manic Mondays. See the post below:
Here is the picture:
The word is: Anchored.
I’ll sing ye a song of the waves and the sea,
A salty old shanty of skullduggery
a tale of a wench
with a heart full of revenge,
and a mettlesome lass was she.
The maid and her man were caught alive
by a pirate crew under cruel Captain Clive
they’d put up a good fight
and that was despite,
an ordeal that few could survive.
She begged for the life of the man she adored,
but Cruel Captain Clive just laughed and ignored,
he made him walk the plank,
and laughed again as he sank,
while he danced around deck with his sword.
Captain Clive took the wench below decks
for it had been a long time without sex,
and he’d fancied the maid,
whose love he’d betrayed
though he had failed to undertake a few checks.
Whilst the ship remained anchored in the bay
Cruel Captain Clive was keen to have his way
The Maid pulled out a knife
and took the Captains life
In a revengeful and bloodthirsty display.
Then with a calm demeanour, serene
and with a brutality, so rarely seen
She cut off his head
put his hat on instead
and She became the dread Pirate Queen!
