  2. Waves
    Beat 'pon
    Fair maid who
    Storm and wind braves
    Her sisters sunk deep
    In eternal wet sleep
    Not a tear graced stoic stare
    Barnacles and seaweed in hair
    Faced with danger and destined for hell
    She ferry's her masters o'er sea and swell

    Lol, I'm no poet.
     
  3. 'Squawk' says the Parrot, softer than Captain.
    'Swab the deck you good for nothing runt!"
    His voice booms louder than the sea.
    Eyes down, mop in hand swabbing,
    My hands are always throbbing.
    Riches are what I dream,
    Work is how I live,
    Gotta' end it.
    Mutiny!
    Right now,
    Go.
    Success!
    No more mop,
    No more Captain.
    I am the Captain!
    All riches shall be mine!
    Walk the plank, you Scallywag!
    'Ker-plunk' goes the former captain.
    Riches and women we all will have!
    Listen here, Let nothing stand in our way!



    Interesting challenge! I failed it:dead:Its harder than I thought it would be.
     
  4. Death
    Looking
    For me now,
    Coming my way,
    Praying I'm not found.
    Hiding in the shadows,
    Hearing screams from above me.
    The pirates killing for our gold,
    All I want is to make it back home.
    Royal blood I am, there trophy I will be,
    Nasty pigs those pirates, looking for me.
    I hear footsteps coming down the stairs,
    Every emotion running away,
    A princess shouldn't be here.
    Away from her family.
    I can hear breathing,
    A stinging pain,
    Rips through me.
    Darkness
    Falls.

    Wow... talk about a challenge. lol
     
  5. Argh.
    Blister
    Me timbers.

    Fearless pirate
    I am! Pillaging,
    Sailing and robbing her
    dear, sweet, little majesty.
    My boots are my soap box, I yell
    to my lover the sea, sonnets of
    dearest affection and my loyalty.
     
  6. Sail,
    On waves
    Of Ocean
    Ever so blue.

    Searching for treasure

    And seeking out pleasures
    And never; I shall never
    Be taken from her ever blue.
    By the sea I have been given life;
    And to the sea I know I shall return.
     
  7. Gold,

    Shining,
    Mesmerize.
    The wooden leg,
    Scuffed across the floor.
    Argh! Ye matey! Yo! Ho!
    The pirate ship's on the go!
    Sailing through the rushing waters.
    Sirens sing their entrancing song.
    They await the man, their next kill. Hooray!
    Don't you worry, it will be over soon.
    They will make it quick, clean, painless.
    You won't feel a thing, no way!
    Make sure that you watch out,
    There is more to come,
    It's pirate life,
    Crazy life,
    Yo! Ho!
    GO!


    ((That's the best I could come up with. It's not my best work.))
     
  8. Pirate Life

    Waves
    Crashing
    Wildly
    Against the bow
    Black sails billowing
    In gusts of ocean spray
    Canons launching balls of fire
    Tearing down the enemy ships
    Capture the crew, take all the treasure
    And drink all their rum while they walk the plank.
