Here is my attempt:

There once was a pirate from Lima
Who was feeling rather fine-a.
When he looked at his boot
he would holler loud: "W00t!"
Then they put him up in a pine-a.

That was terrible.

My wife bought me a pair of new bootsies.
That were much too small for my tootsies.
Though my boots are too tight,
With this poem, I might,
Get Indeed to stop mur-dering pussies.

Indeed, is your Viridian account Indeed as well? I've been looking for you, there IS an account named Indeed, but I don't know if it's really you.

Yep. I claimed indeed on all oceans as soon as the oceans were opened. I'm sneaky like that.

triolets were fun, i think. let us have some of those.

about greed.

i think i shall change things, though, for easier-ness and less kitten-deaths.

Deadline shall be 8:30 PST on Wednesdays, when i'll read them and then post them briefly in this here thread. They'll remain posted until 9:30 PST when i close voting and hopefully actually have a winner or two.

entries still go to indeed@heksubah.com. votes still by /tell to indeed or by email for non-midnight pirates.

and this time i'll try and be more sober. that could help things along, too.

Bah! Too late with the limericks, I guess. Oh well, they only took a few minutes each. Better to post them here than have them sitting unappreciated on my hard drive.


Our Indigo pillage was quite jolly
Until attacked by red players. "Oh Golly!"
The black ship did emerge
But I resisted the urge
To yell "Das schwarze boot!" at their folly


Whilst my captain lubbed to pillage around,
Idle greenies would oft give her a frown.
One did stare at the loot
So she gave him the boot
"Don't let the plank hit you on the way down!"

My boot limerick was:

My bootmaker just doesn't care.
I shouted at her "It's not fair!
My left is a leg
But my right is a peg!
So why should I pay for the pair?"

Unless Indeed's has defined what a triolet is and i missed it, here is the definition.

Triolet: A poem or stanza of eight lines with a rhyme scheme abaaabab, in which the fourth and seventh lines are the same as the first, and the eighth line is the same as the second.

And here's the wiki poem as a guide...

I feel with wonder and surprise
The hard, hard softness of your touch;
Then your bright, swift, and careful eyes
I feel with wonder and surprise.
Enough, for rage is sure to rise
If once again, and then not much,
I feel with wonder and surprise
The hard, hard softness of your touch.

There was a young pirate by the name of Indeed,
And when she speaks you should take heed.
She'll kill a young kitty,
Ignoring that it is pretty,
And for the poor cat my heart will now bleed.
