A Pirate Me Be

Ahoy there matey, I pirate I be
and out on the ocean
is where I roam free.

With the wind on me back
and me flag that be black.
I fly it so high
as I set out to see,
to see what treasures,
what treasures there be.
Me sails they be red
and two lass in me bed.
My lips always moist
with the drinks of me choice.
Such a life that this is
this life it's fer me.
Always a piratin,
a pirate I'll be.

My weapon be fear.
struck from me cannons you'll hear.
As they draw near
and you see the red mast.
Fer no one shall escape,
me treacherous grasp.
I'll board yer ship,
with me rum on me hip.
I takes what I want
and then I be gone.
Drinking away
and singing me song.
I laugh as me shot
rains down from the sky.
Screaming, I'll be a pirate,
till the day that I die.

I loot and I pillage
and plunder and take.
The possessions from the weak
to add to the fortune I make.
I don't need class,
I just grab any lass.
See, all that I want.
I takes it for free.
Cause they all tremble
at the likes of me.
I don't fight fair,
no honor or glory.
I'm your children's
terrible bed time story.
Quick with a pistol
and quicker with a knife.
Singing, I'll be a pirate,
fer all of me life.

So ahoy there matey, a pirate I be.
Now what does ya have,
to bargain yer life fer with me?

    Great fun...may I make a couple of suggestions? " 'cause they all tremble at fellas like me" "I'm the terror of every child's story" "quick with a pistol fast with a knife I'll be a blackguard fer all of my life" "now what will ye trade be it treasure or gold your life may be worthless but do what you're told." "I loot and I plunder and pillage and take I frighten the children And make maidens quake" "Follow me matey I'll make ye a man Sing me a song Get rich while ye can". Victoria

    Amazing and lively poem of what it would be like, and to think like, and speak like a pirate. Poem got character and attitude and it is very entertaining. It speaks volume about pirate way of life.
