Soft and sexy

Soft and sexy. ‘Oh my soul! Wrap

Me up and take me home.’ She was

An angel in every way, why even her

Love had wings and come nightfall

It was a wrench to let go of such a

Beautiful creature perchance the small

Hours might give rise to pirates who

Not for the first time in my life have

Cost me dear in matters of the heart


Gone from these shores these many

Years now was the fate of my last

Love, press ganged via the haunted

Jetty at Sweptaway Bay. Where she

Went, why and when she was taken

Are still a mystery, but word from the

Americas tell of a girl kidnapped for

Ransom who proved to be so beautiful

A pirate of note instantly fell in love

With her and she with him


Consolation, if there was any of it

To be had at the time took the form

Of a note pinned to a star which read

As follows: Love is not always as we

Would wish it to be. There are winners

And there are losers and sadly on this

Occasion you, dear earth dweller, fell

Into the unfortunate category of the

Latter, but, be of good cheer earthling

The pirate of note has a beautiful sister

In dire need of a captain for her ship

The Light Diamond and I fancy if you

Were to apply for the position she might

Jump at the chance of securing a man

Of your consummate skills at the wheel


And so tonight you are in the happy

Position of having the stars on your

Side and on the fringe of the brightest

Star you will find the coordinates for

A happy voyage through life. Marry

The sister of the pirate of note and you

Will find her love worth more than any

Plunder credited to her brother


Your losing streak is passed and with its

Passing comes a new page of good fortune

A fortune that will be yours at the helm of

A ship with a heart, a heart that loves you

And always will. Set sail now young man

For the winds and the tide are in your favour
