My Love Is Your Booty

A Pirate's Villanelle

by Dustin Michael

MY love is your booty, your booty — avast
Ahoy! It is red hot and shall not grow cold
Big as the briny deep, full as the mast

Put both hands on it and grip it tight, fast
Shiver me timbers, it's something to hold
My love is your booty, your booty — avast

The sum of my yearnings are into it cast
Aye, in its dark deepness are mysteries untold
Big as the briny deep, full as the mast

Its bounty is boundless, its boundaries are vast
Upon it the giants of yore could have rolled
My love is your booty, your booty — avast

A haul of its magnitude's seldom amassed
For no other booty could fit in its mold
Big as the briny deep, full as the mast

Its value and worth shall not e'er be surpassed
A booty so precious could ne'er be sold
My love is your booty, your booty — avast
Big as the briny deep, full as the mast
