Barnacle Bob’s booty

#Writephoto #Pirate #treasure

They say Barnacle Bob

was a buccaneering pirate

bigger than Blackbeard

He kept quiet where he kept his plunder

of diamonds , silver and gold

they say, to the grim reaper its been sold

His body buried in a simple hole

the treasure hunters surveyed it whole

to locate this precious valuable goal

But while they dig – to their dismay

rocks and clay are all that bill gives way

for the gravestone says – treasures miles away
