A pirate of the pacific,
Was given a map and told,
By lady of the luck lagoon,
He’d find his treasured gold.
He sailed the Jolly Roger,
With his compass and his crew,
And set his destination,
Where the X was drew.
They made their port in secret,
On an island desert and small,
And dug real deep through sand,
But there was nothing there at all.
‘That lying lady luck’ he said,
And her name he cursed,
‘I can not find this treasure
There’s nothing here but dirt!’
So when told of buried fortunes,
Where X it marks the spot,
It could be some mistake,
It marks where it is not.
For X of the A to Z challenge. Turns out, x is a very difficult topic!
