"A Fishing Pirate's Tale", By Philoctetes [UP]

A pirate and a fisher I be,
I set sail on the UO sea.
Pirates and rum, all part of the fun,
it's hunting the high seas for me.

My pirate is ready to sail,
but first in my boat must bail.
Some pirates they came, and holes in my main,
my hull is now ready to fail.

With wood and cloth I do mend,
my crew a hand they do lend.
The holes are now gone,
the sail she is strong,
we set sail on the high seas again.

Only merchants be found on this day,
and I find them so easy a prey.
I load up my cannon,
I fire at random,
they watch as I haul loot away.

I go fishing the whole day long,
my poleis stronger than strong.
I toss out the bait,
then I wait and I wait.
Nothing ~ what am I doing so wrong?

The fishes they swim all around,
A BIG one I finally found.
Big lobster and crab,
do not make me mad,
they "bob" and my traps all go down.

In Ter Mur the salmon were found.
The beaches I walked all around.
The dock id OK,
I stood there all day,
but my biggest was caught in the sound.

The contest has long since endith,
my pole, it greatly did bendith.
A one ninety-two,
was a beautiful blue,
'first place' then Thom did me giveith.

My pirate mates and me,
we sail on the UO sea.
After a longdays run, and we all had some fun.
good friends and mates we all be!
