A simple pirate rat I be
With a toothy shameless grin;
I was rescued from the Pirates Royale
And days of vice and sin.
I came to the Sunny Southeast
And have traveled far and wide;
This suits my pirate nature
And my wild adventurous side.
Each year I travel state to state
To visit the parks and museums;
I love the food and friendly folks
But not your cats and no-see-ums.
(You try rhyming with ‘museums’)
So remember if you are so lucky
To win me with your bid,
Provide me with lots of insect spray
And of all cats be rid.
Suppress the urge to dress me
In your sport team’s red and gold;
Just keep my bowl in catfish
and all me ales cold! Arrrr!
