Las Vegas Whale


A Las Vegas whale
Without a tail
Rolled and trundled about

Moist bulging eyes
Hoping to spy
A wench to pirate

There by the bar
Tall and willowy
Deep dark eyes

His bloated bulk
A treasure laden galleon
Set course toward her

The deep dark eyes
Fixed on the whale
And glittered

He flirted and flattered
She towered above him
Smiling, determined his fate

The Las Vegas whale
Without a tail
Never saw the harpoon.

I wrote this from a word prompt session, the word being 'pirate'. I found an Urban Dictionary definition, 'looking for a woman to pirate, have casual sex with'.

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
