Pirate Poem

Oh, I am a hearty pirate bold,
I sail the seas in a quest for gold--
Through sun and wind, heat and cold;
Yo, ho, yes, I'm a pirate bold!

T'was at an inn a tale was told,
About a chest that was full of gold,
On an island where the sea-birds scold--
Where lightning flashed and thunder rolled,
Ah, ha! To me a map was sold!

I sailed my ship to where I was told,
A chest awaited full of gold,
I dug through layers and piles of mold
And pulled it up, of wealth untold--
At last! I found the gold!

The lock I smote sevenfold,
Until it broke--at last, the gold!
But when I looked inside, I found no gold;
Instead a paper I did unfold--
And it said thus:"Thou fool, there be no gold!
A false map to you has been sold,
Bad luck to you as you grow old--
And rot away to dust and mold."

As I read this, my heart grew cold,
I swore that I would find some gold,
Back home, the one to me the map had sold
Soon lay in the grave, dead and cold;
And I for the map got back my gold.
For I'm a wicked pirate bold!

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

The rhyming was ingenious and flowed beautifully. But underneath the words is a very bold and powerful insight. I'd love to see more of your work.
