Tortuga

A Poem by Mirko Galušić
"

It tells of the legendary pirate island Tortuga. This is a song from my past pirate metal experimental band...

"
Tortuga

If you sail the seven seas,
And you see a turtles shell,
behind the mist on the horizon,
A story you must tell!

A story of a pirate,
Before 300 years or so,
About a legendary island,
Forgotten long ago!

Welcome to tortuga,
Where the pirates stash their gold,
The place of ale and women,
With a story to be told!
Join us in our quest
Become a pirate of the sea,
Sail under jolly roger,
Fulfill your destiny!

Welcome to tortuga,
Where the pirates stash their gold,
The place of ale and women,
With a story to be told!
Join us in our quest
Become a pirate of the sea,
Sail under jolly roger,
Fulfill your destiny!

The island where the butchers,
Smoked their famous meat,
Became the land of famous pirates,
The land of buccaneers!

Where captains told their tales,
Even Morgan started here,
If you're one of royal navy,
Then you should run in fear!

Way back in times of yore,
Our fortress sadly fell,
But we did not surrender,
We gave them more than hell!

The tales were left untold,
So listen very well,
The story of an island,
With a shape of turtles shell!

Welcome to tortuga,
Where the pirates stash their gold,
The place of ale and women,
With a story to be told!
Join us in our quest,
Become a pirate of the sea,
Sail under jolly roger,
Fulfill your destiny!

When I read this, i could imagine a gang of pirates drinking beer in a tavern, blowing their horns, pounding drums and performing this. I think I heard few gun shots too :D. A very enjoyable read.

Corrections: It should be; "We gave them more THAN hell"
