A Pirate Tale

by TheStoryMan

A Pirate Tale

There is a tale of a dark ole pirate
who walked the plank one night.
Tied and chained without a name
as he went down and out of sight.

Yet he was astute and perspicacious,
a scourge of the seven seas.
Who the captain found a nemesis,
to his crew a bad disease.

So the men went about their merry way
as the captain drank his rum.
But there was some chatter upon the deck
about the damage to succumb.

A shipmate yelled out so all could hear,
"There was no sound, no noise."
As the captain bellowed out in reply,
"He's dead by now me boys!"

Now the storm it had intensified,
and the spanking breeze was whaling.
As a dark old pirate's voice was heard
"Be wise in these seas you're sailing."

Now the waves they were relentless,
and the sea turned that ship around.
As the captain looked out in despair
where an old pirate had been drowned.

Now the ice came down in buckets,
freezing the ole ship and sails
as a savvy old pirate sang his song
dead men tell no tales.

The ship stayed there dead at sea,
an entire crew froze on deck.
As an old pirate could be heard a whistling
avast ye hearties blimey wreck.

Shiver me timbers, as one would say,
batten the hatches, blow me down
chantey sing bring a spring upon her
where merry ole men are drowned.

So stare ye upon a cold, bright moon
that waves high up in the sky
where the spectres dark, hellborn ghost
just simply refused to die.

A captain stood as a frozen corpse
staring across a cold black sea.
As the ship had met its gloomy end
with her name as Misery!
