A Pirate Makes a Poem:

Apparently all it takes
Ta get ye works ta slake
Is a simple scheme o' rhyme
Which takes a minute o' time

Perhaps I'll do the same
It's fair ta play this game
No meanin' in tha words
They just flop around like birds

"Oh this stuff it speaks to me!"
Really is that true?
I'm afraid ye might be daft me thinks
Ye certainly be loose a screw

For if works do not have meanin'
Then they're simply done and dull
I think I'd rather spend me time
Playin' dice in a golden skull

I suppose that what tha people want
Is a simple kind o' style
One that looks as good as ale
But tastes like bricks and bile

"Now then lads, do I get ta be a poet too?"

-Chen Yuan Wen, 10th July 2012
Arrr maties,

Just doin' me warm-ups for Random Week. I was thinkin' that recently, a lot of poets don't really challenge themselves. There are very few poets that I bother ta recognise, because (although it comes from different poets each time) i always end up seein' a string of poems about love, friendship and eventually loss. Not to say that this is bad, everyone writes works like these; it's how ye start ta get inta tha swing of things. Yet, there are those that repeat it over and over as if there is only one technique. Really? I don't believe that's the case.

So to demonstrate, here is a little poet, written from a drunk pirate. Enjoy the laughs everyone :3
