The Voyage of “Hell’s Modesty”

The jolly roger flails
In the stormy winter breeze
Above a deck of scalawags
Afloat upon the seas.

The crew is cruel and vile,
Culled from horrors of the night,
Which would be very normal
If their captain weren’t polite.

He’ll pull aside a merchant ship.
His cannons towards it swivel.
He shouts, “Please share your vittles
“So we may all be civil.”

Perhaps his victims do suspect
He’s playing with their minds,
But his motto is “Just be yourself
“And the looting works out fine.”
