Narration fun

R. decided to write a poem today for her narration of George Washington's World, chapter "The Bon Homme Richard".

This 'tis the story of 
John Paul Jones
And his battle. Ay! 
'Twas bad.
Bloodshed was spread,
But his words
Of bravery bore
The men on.
"I have not yet begun
To fight!" he said
And on the battle raged.
Alas! Though John was young,
The good ole ship was aged.
So, she sunk! Ay,
Twas a sad day.
But the British Captain surrendered:
The American's had WON!
