Bellied up to the rail, sword in hand
pride on his flouncy, pirate sleeve.
Swashbuckler Sam takes a mighty, noble
but not-to-well-thought-out stand.
“I’ll steal the booty and the girl;
I’ll pillage ’till the cows come home.
I’ll shoot the matey in the head,
and toss the scraggly dog a bone.”
He bragged about his pirate deeds
while his tipsy folly sealed the deal,
The approaching ship slipped through the seas:
Jack Sparrow at the wheel.
No need exists to brag about
one’s pirate feats galore
When Sparrow comes to have his way
Your Swashbuckler days are o’er.
