Pirate Princess

Oh yes, my savage

Little pirate princess

She stalks

And struts

And swaggers

Our hallway

Like the deck of

Her own piratical


She hollers

“Wait a right here!

I’ll be right back

Stalking off to quell disorder

On the imaginary

below decks

She runs back

Come here, come here!

She gestures

Righting the captains hat on her hed

Come here!

I am the pirate captain

Come here!


Hands me her juice cup

Daddy? I need a drink


I am the pirate captain….

Ay Ay cap’n!

is all any Daddy could reply,
