Captain C. Waves

pirate-1.jpg

Captain C. Waves was lost at Sea,
The ship’s compass wasn’t working properly.
They’d set sail from Plymouth, earlier that day,
Heading, they thought, in a North – Westerly way,
But Captain C. Waves hadn’t expected the weather to get worse,
And the gales blew them suddenly off course.
The ship’s parrot was becoming a pest,
So Captain C. Waves put him in the crow’s nest.
On the deck, the crew were drunk,
If they didn’t start working, they’d all be sunk !
Captain C. Waves slipped, tried to read the map in the rain.
He wondered if they’d ever reach the coast of Spain.
The ship’s sails billowed as the gale blew,
Overhead, seagulls flew.
Captain C. Waves tried to anchor on a rock,
But they were a hundred miles from the nearest dock.
As the waters splashed, a cannonball crashed.
Thunder roared and lightening flashed.
It was difficult to see which was starboard and port,
In the galley, the ship’s chef was cooking the fish they’d caught.
Captain C. Waves hoped there’s be gravy …
It was one of the best things about being in the navy !
He called to his shipmate that dinner would be late …
The crew, too, thought fish and chips were great !
