no crow’s nest, no plank,

we’ll not have to worry

’bout being shark bait.


Yes, marooned in the sun

and becalmed on the land,

we’ll plunder each other

like hot scallywags—


I will shiver yar timbers,

ye’ll scuttle me fears,

I need yar good body

like I need the night stars—


and those scurvy puppies

who come thar to stare

will be wanting that they were

to spend unreal doubloons

and make real love

in our pirate costumes.
