Author's Note: This was written in response to a challenge to write about Exploding Muffins for the guild Secret Dreams.

Pintel and Ragetti were locked in their cell

Waiting for the echo of their final bell

Their necks would be stretched by the noose

Until they were long as that of a goose

It was unfair as pirates they be

Borrowing, thieving and collecting their fee

The Commodore, however, thought it was wrong

And so would ring their final gong.

"Pint", said Ragetti his face filled with fear

"Lets escape! I reckon we don't want to stay here!"

His companion smiled and showed rotten teeth

That were almost as bad as his unwashed feet.

Pintel was clever and had planned ahead

To prevent them from becoming dead.

He reached into his ragged clothing

Covered in tar, they were truly loathing.

A battle muffin appeared in his dirt stained hand

And it would explode with a sound louder than a band

A clay pot of gunpowder was hidden in the muffin you see

With a wick that would buzz like an angry bee

Pintel placed it near the cell door

And struck a flint on the floor

The muffin was lit and hid they did

And the muffin exploded as they had bid

The door was knocked free

With lots of debris

Pintel and Ragetti fled down the smoke filled hall

As smartly dressed marines loudly called

They made it outside with incredible speed

Laughing at their clever deed

A rowboat they did steal

The sea beneath them a familiar feel

So if yer be in a plight

Remember the Exploding Muffin's might!
