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!
