The Pirate's Curse

She walked along the river bed,
and many things she saw:
crabs and sands and rubber bands,
and even fish of craw!
She stopped to get a nickel,
from underneath a stone,
but when she moved the pebble,
she found a human bone!
She gasped and hid it quickly,
within her sequined purse,
but no sooner did she do that,
then she got the pirate's curse!
