Malady Grim

Malady Grim

Captain Palaver deepest black,
smothered blue in richness, hacked,
for dash on deck Malady Grim,
hoke up bowl a yellowfin.

Tempting not, but for a nod,
like hollow waste on sea, and sod,
tho loath to cast cadaver cold,
left to sink in curs’d mold.

Grim malady takes him in...

What's the story here? It was a lot of fun to write...

  • after watching the movie Pirates of the Caribbean and thinking about my 'lack' of cooking that weekend :)
  • things always 'pop' to mind and I think I enjoy that most about writing - always a surprise :)
