Artist's Description

High on a mountain overlooking the sea
Is a dense wood forest adorned with tree
Whenever a ship docks with pirates on board
Its crew climbs the cliff their treasure to hoard
There are chests with trinkets, money and gold
Stolen and hidden, greed constant and cold

The pirates are bawdy and thirsty for rum
To celebrate vic’try and smuggled income
They dance by the light of a mist shrouded moon
Then fall where they stand til a quarter past noon
To welcome the day they belch and they boo
As they jump down into the deep briny blue

Off to conquer and capture again they go
With women and prisoners safely in tow
Riches and liquor stored deep in the woods
Protected from all who might covet their goods
But a pirate’s life is right rowdy and rough
And requires a makeup of all the wrong stuff

So sometimes these rascals who sail the high seas
With guns and swords and more often disease
Can’t always return to their stowed away booty
Then others go looking and stand the death duty
As sharp sword is drawn or dagger is wielded
One pirate goes down, the other life shielded

A rousing pirate’s life for me I dare say?
I gave that some serious thought just today
As exciting, nail biting and lively it be
The pirate’s life holds nothing for me
I will visit the wood and look for the loot
Then out of that spooky forest I’ll scoot!
