A Pirate's Life For Me

A Pirate's Life For Me

A Poem by Tay

The eve of time dawned with our ship creaking on the horizon
We are but ghosts on the sea
Poltergeists pillaging the lands
We are your dreams and nightmares altogether
Storm clouds follow us
Time stands still as we enter the battle field
Cannons yearning for use
Our home creaks
Waves crashing upon its solid exterior
Like magpies we advance
Swords glinting in the moonlight
We are monkeys swinging from the mast of our pirate zoo
Rum is the fuel of our treasure quest
We drink to our health
Our freedom
Our lives
Out there on the open sea
Life is a merry dance
The elixir is the vast expanse of water
Our flag tattered
But our hearts true
To a cause never forgotten
Through mutiny and savage wrecks
We pass without a care
We are the stubborn ones
The ones that stopped caring
We travel by uncharted lands
The place where rules never formed
