Pirates

Pirates

By May Kwek

One thing I can not understand
Is why pirates are so admired
After all they are but men
Who perhaps of life are tired

Perhaps it is the dream
Of living wild and free
Servant to no man
Only to God and Sea

Or maybe it is the adventures
With stories and sword fights
Of gold, silver and jewels
That shine like stars at night

But then if this is true
I find it rather sad
Because a pirate is but a fancy thief 
With a parrot and hat
