Poem 11, Prompt 23

Arandale Shimmersley Gilbert the Fifth
Was heir to the throne of La Monde
But ruling the world was not what he wished
So Arandale chose to abscond

He fled from the palace at quarter to two
His ambition in life was clear
The only thing he’d ever wanted to do
Be a bloodthirsty buccaneer

He hitched all the way to the port of Du Zift
Where he hijacked a high-powered yacht
But there was something that young Gilbert the Fifth
Had unfortunately forgot

He had failed to remember that he could not swim
And so when the yacht capsized
Arandale Shimmersley Gilbert the Fifth
Went under and never arised
