If I Were A Pirate

If I were a pirate,
How would I live?
First and foremost,
I'd act as if,
I was Captain Jack Sparrow's kin.

Sounds like big boots to fill,
But I think I could fit.
With my charming looks,
I'd escape close call arrests.
Let's not forget, my clever wits.

If I were a pirate,
How would I live?
Similar to Kenny Chesney,
Claiming my own island,
Far away from the crowded cities.

I'd still hold pride with my gypsy soul,
Without feeling trapped in closing walls.
I'd live in wide open spaces,
Embracing my Epicurean freedom,
As I journey the world on my own Black Pearl.

If I were a pirate,
How would I live?
Instead of hiding a stash of rum,
I'd keep secret my own treasures,
That prevents me from becoming succumb.
