Heard It Straight From the Parrot’s Lips

Shiver me timbers,
Getting loose,
Getting limber,
I ordered 3 chicken planks
from Long John Silver's.
I like the honey mustard,
Hush puppies, and french fries.
I took a sip of Orange soda
Partnered to my food's eyes.
See, fried food is soul.
And soul food is Blue,
And Orange is its compliment;
You know that combo's true.
It was all in good time.
It was all in good measure.
I buried the treasure,
And it brought me great pleasure.
Then, I sailed off and away
On the ocean of tar,
And I was feeling so good
That I yelled out Yarrrrr!

Get Loose

I tell them a joke,
But they don't wanna laugh.
They brace themselves
And prepare to hold back.
Then, at the end,
They get kind of mad
Like, "is that really
The best joke that you had?!"
I tell them a story,
And they think it's a joke.
They say, "I don't get it."
I say "it's an anecdote.
There's no punchline.
It's just something that happened.
I found it amusing;
So, I thought I'd recap it."
Being too critical doesn't brighten the mood;
So, the moral is
Lighten up and get loose.
