Anti/Piracy

Poem By Robert Sheridan

Privateer/Loot on any Treasure Island
Truth/Cut-throat tactics with the world
Respect/Seamens perpetuated crime
Unashamed/The Skull & Crossbones
Myth/Commit unparalleled atrocities
Supercede/Live and die by the cutlass
Integrity/Life - desperately monotonous
Intervention/Count their booty - thieves
Precede/Plunderers, or confidence men
Victory/Slumlords of the low & high seas.

things through, then
enters the 'f' word,
