Requiem For The Pirate’s Dream

Explosions of light in the darkened sky,
The corpses of sailors floating at sea.
Drifting into the sea where all the dead may lie.
The sailors who died for their ships.

Ships rising from the depths of the ocean,
Those dead pirates rising with it.
Tormented souls bent on destruction,
Raising their swords, howling into the sky.

"Tear down that fucking shaft, we have no use for that shit."
Deadend vocal chords crackling with laughter, wet with rum.
Unmarked graves for those fair sailors,
Tearing other sailors to chunks; the cycle repeats.

"Now take us, take us to that fucking horizon."
Drifting off to the depths of the ocean, leaving the dead to
Float to shore and decay.
You're not brutal.
