The Pirates

                          The Pirates
 
Pirates were around in the 16th century, they flew the 
Jolly Roger/Scull & Crossbones and would loot and pillage
Ships at sea, for their rich cargo and gold doubloons
Over the years they have moved to land in guises as
Highwaymen and bushrangers, outlaws that steal money
As well as gold and defy the law.  In modern times the 
Pirate has become an even bigger threat to the film and
Music industry by bootlegging copies on videotape and
Disks, robbing performers and actors of their rightful
Royalties.  Now in the days of the Internet, the pirate or
Modern day version known as a scammer, creates
All sorts of evil ways to attain money on hoax activities
Dating sites and social networking even through networks
With items for sale. Yes hoaxes and scams make up about 
Seventy percent of Internet activities, which goes 
Unpoliced, with people losing large ammounts of money
To these unscroupulous people every day. Can they be
Stopped?  The answer is a mystery, as the world is losing
It's innocence to unstoppable theives we call pirates.

    Hi Linda, I compared the past pirates with the todays scammers, they acquire the same but by more updated methods the keyword here is stealing, but the modern way is by stealth, I am glad you liked this effort as I have plenty more waiting to be posted, enjoy yourself, best wishes. John
