Toothless grin

From a pirate of the sea

Boarding ships

Maritime thieves

Cutlass held between their teeth

Swing on ropes

A frightening sight to see

For law abiding sailors

Trading across the seven seas

A skull and cross bones flag

Represents a maritime disease

That’s punished by execution

Death being the final solution

Pirates fiercely brutal and mean

Not the stuff of fantasies

Dangerous lifestyle

Consigned to history

Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum

The pirate life is now done.
