The night before Rum Quest


The night before rum quest

And all along the beach

No rum could be found

Not even the Screech


The reef warriors were fast asleep

Some even in bed

As visions of Sailor Jerry

Danced in their heads


Pyrat Reserve

Had done me in

I finished my nightcap

This is no sin


Soon I was awakened

Up I did dash

Tempted to drink up

A small taste of The Lash


I looked out the window

What I saw gave me stoke

Old Captain Morgan

In a pot still pulled by 8 barrels of oak


He called out the barrels by name

With the same care and skill

The good Captain used

To land the old copper still


Taste Oronoco, try Appleton’s

Drink Bacardi and Zaya

Enjoy Zacapa, Eldorado                     

Savor Diplomatico and Viscaya


The Captain was dark

With a head of cork and wood

With hints of vanilla

I new this would be good



Old like Ron Anejo

Sweet like molasses

He poured himself some grog

I had the same, just different glasses




To the rum bar he went

With a cask full of goods

Many tasty flavors and spices

Ripe fruit and charred woods


Four Square Spiced

For Giget and the Possum

Thanks good Captain

This is awesome


Kraken for Casey     

A flask of Mount Gay for Randy   

Rum cakes for Sharon  

Even a bone for Sandy


Then he was gone

In the blink of an eye

I’ll be back for mojito Monday

He yelled from the sky


I heard him exclaim

As he rolled out of sight

Happy rum quest to all

And to all, a good night.
