DLTK's Crafts for Kids
The Pirate Poodle

by Carolyn Wells


Once there was a Pirate Poodle,
   And he sailed the briny seas
From the land of Yankee Doodle
   Southward to the Caribbees.

He would boast with tales outlandish,
   Of his valor and renown;
And his cutlass he would brandish
   With a fearful pirate frown.

So ferocious was his manner
   All his crew looked on, aghast;
And his fearful pirate banner
   Floated from his pirate mast.

He reiterated proudly
   Naught had power to make him quail;
Yet when thunder roared too loudly
   He would turn a trifle pale.

And he turned a little paler
   When there came a sudden squall;
For this funny little sailor
   Was ridiculously small.

And whene'er a storm portended
   He'd betake himself below.
So much fear and courage blended
   Did a pirate ever show?
