  • Pirate Ambush
    by Valerie Joanne Higgins

    Ambush from behind an island's lee,
    Triple the sail,
    Give order to flee!
    Half moon arrowheads,
    Cutting the rope!
    Tumbling sheets
    Extinguish hope!
    Pirate captain,
    Shouts order to board!
    Only our officers,
    carry a sword.
    Useless now,
    For cannons to roar!
    Nothing to do,
    But swim for the shore!

    Valerie Joanne Higgins a fantasy artist and poet who lives in Shropshire, England.
