I’ll black me boots, and block me hat-
Alas, it seems I’m old and fat.
The years I’ve known all take their toll-
And yet my tales do seem quite droll…
A dram or two, an’ wi’ out fail-
I’m like to spin a Traveler’s Tale.
Do ye ken young Lord Loch’nivar?
Wha’ stole the lass and fled afar?
Now, mate, the lad could use a blade!
An’ “faith”! ‘e knew the fightin’ trade.
An ‘orse, an ‘orse, and a guid blade-
Necessities to ply me trade.
What trade be that? Dost thou inquire-
Why, lad, a fightin’ man fer hire!
An’ Walter Raleigh? What a rake!
I let ‘im live fer ‘er ‘ighness’ sake.
Now, Nelson? Ah, more to my taste-
‘e died at sea, My, what a waste.
Lord Admiral of bold England’s fleet-
The mon ‘ad never known defeat.
Fergive me, if I ramble on-
Of ports I’ve seen, an’ folk I’ve known..
Wi’ age they says the minds do fail…
I live wi’ in me Traveler’s Tales.

I'll never tire of reading about your traveler's tales. Imagination at its finest. Well done, gs.

(er, would that be England's fleet instead of feet? Not that it matters....)
