The Pirate Queen

August 24, 2022 at 10:03 pm (History, Poetry) (, )

A sight not to be forgotten once seen
This Seven Seas beauty who was the Pirate Queen
She went on many a raid and plunder
From Caribbean to Africa and a land Down Under
From the cold waves of Scotland’s North Sea
To the holy shores of Galilee
The Pirate Queen struck lust then terror in men’s hearts
Her name is still spoken on hushed lips in tropical parts

  1. Hyperion said,

    Mermaids, Sirens, and Pirate Queens. What’s a poor sailor to do? Enjoyed the imagery this conjured up.

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Thank you, Daniel. πŸ˜€

      Yes, mermaids, sirens and pirate queens are three of my favourite subjects.

      • Hyperion said,

        I do believe you cover the subjects well and transport us to their world where we too can enjoy the charm of Mermaids, Sirens, and Pirate Queens. It makes my dreamland tank explode with consistent regularity. πŸ€ͺ

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        You appear to have something in common with Michelangelo the Psychic Lobster. πŸ¦žπŸ˜‚

  2. George F. said,

    Lust then terror…they all do that! Perhaps this one better than most, but that’s what lust leads to and you don’t find out until after you’re married…

    A jolly sea shanty of a poem, Chris,
    as I’m sure Yvonne De Carlos also
    appreciated a bottle of rum πŸ΄β€β˜ οΈ 😎

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Thanks, David. πŸ™πŸ»πŸ˜Ž

      Yes, I’m very sure that Yvonne de Carlo appreciated a bottle of rum. πŸ΄β€β˜ οΈ

      Particularly the day a fortune teller told her that she’d eventually marry Herman Munster. 😱

      • David Redpath said,

        Well, she was Canadian πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ 😎

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        She was indeed. πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦πŸ˜Ž

        And very much enjoyed a bottle of Captain Morgan’s Rum.

  4. David Redpath said,

    Too much Captain Morgan’s
    during your third trimester
    and you may give birth πŸ‘Ά
    to an Eddie Munster 😱
