Ode to A Pirate's Life


A pirate's life is ill-fated,
But his yearning keeps him seeking further
For adventure wherever he travels,
Be it on land or on the high seas
He'll lust for more;
As there's treasure to be hunted & found,
There's deadly risks to be taken,
But it's not a problem for a tough, old pirate,
Who has weathered many a storm in his own life,
He's won enough battles to tempt him to go on
To risk his life again tomorrow,
For the freedom that he has earned.

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
