I’m a Pirate Ballerina

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I’m a pirate ballerina
on a pirate sailing ship.
In my purple pirate leotard
I like to spin and skip.

I prance around the poop deck
leaping lightly on my toes
in my purple pirate tutu
and my bustle and my bows.

I wiggle on the rigging
and I dance around the mast,
shouting, “Yo, ho, ho, me hearties!”
and, “Ahoy there!” or “Avast!”

I’m sure you’d think it’s strange
to see me jump around and gyrate,
but this is rather normal
for a ballerina pirate.

If you wonder why I do this,
it’s a fairly simple answer…
My mother was a pirate
and my father was a dancer.
