Young Pirates of Flushing, Queens

young pirates
of Flushing, Queens
shout about treasures
they pull from their jeans

taste floor hors d’oeuvres
before mother can clean
but even at their worst
we’re living the dream

the pirates
of Queens
have promises to keep
they punctuate their orders
by stomping
their small feet

our joy ambition
is molding these girls
into warrior women
who conquer the world
