Every night at 7 o’clock on the dot
no buts mister,
I take a bath.
A fruity smelling,

What my mom doesn’t know,
is that my bathtub is really a pirate ship.
I’m the captain of course.
Sailing the seven seas,
and doing what pirates do.
I capture the sharks,
whose fins poke out of the foam.
And I make them walk the plank.

My mom says that I shouldn’t splash,
and I need to hold still so she can wash my hair.
She doesn’t understand that
my pirate crew doesn’t wait.
So I
just keep on sailing.
