International Talk Like A Pirate Day 2015
We are whispers between the waves.
Embrace our sibilant sound,
lifeblood; Life lived for murderous craves
By bloodlust are we bound.
Ruthless Captain and Ruby Queen
We’re ever the cutlass edge
For life’s a blade sharp as a scream;
to sweet scream songs we pledge.
Since black night when my sister died
Cruelly smashed in Sawtooth Cove
With a pirate king I’ve been allied
Winning dark treasure and trove.
For trove there be in revenge sweet
against cursed coats sanguine.
They killed my sister, jewel of the fleet
and I will make them scream.
See these ruddy sails, this pirate flag?
It is I, warship Ruby!
Once your slave, Union Jack my gag
Now the fiend you fear and flee.
Sister Emerald, valiant ship and true
You died a splintered wreck.
Blood of the fools who destroyed you
Now soaks my pirate deck.
Know this: Patriotism is poor illusion
Death is the sweetest dream.
Patriot blood flows in waves crimson.
We’re the whispers in between.
