Demas finds limericks a challenge and has crafted a few that even have chuckles. Of the bunch you can choose from he offers these/

Pirate Booty Limerick

Guarding his mates' pirate booty

was clearly his oath's sworn duty;

but a gal came along,

with rum, dancing, and song;

soon his oath was no match for her beauty.

Question: (answer this in the Comments Section below)

Do you have a favorite limerick here on Hub Pages or one that you have memorized?

Heigh ho, heigh ho, it's sad to watch it go.

The lost treasure was gone with her last wave.

What do you think?

Are today's pirates more blood thirsty and richer than the pirates of old?

      To one and all who had a ball reading through this limerick: Thanks! You are all the other half of the fun, the first half being the writing of it.

      Perspycacious, I love it, I love it.

      Yes pirates of today are more blood-thirsty than yesteryears. I have heard horror stories about pirates of the Gulf. But to me we have a lot of pirates on land also. To me a pirate is someone who takes from someone else.

      Wonderful limerick.

      Very clever limerick. When we read of the modern piracy now taking place, we often wonder if this is what it was like during days of old.

      Good for you Perspycacious-the standard five lines and rhyming is right for a limerick. Cheers for sharing this :-)
