” FLAG OF THE BLACK SEA ” ~by Martin Gedge



POEM ” FLAG OF THE BLACK SEA ” by martin gedge

Image may contain: one or more people

Arrgh ! me hearties welcome hither
the gallows of my ship
the sea we ride against the tide
and grasp the devils whip
the pirates of the dark brigade
a wreckage for the dead
the ghostly men that will defend
each severed sailor’s head
we hoist to cheer the loyal guard
and shadow in the black
to take unkind what’s rightly mine
the blade to stab the back
we crash the shores and raid the coast
and pilferage, rape and kill
and rush to flood to spill the blood
against a peasants will
we take the gold and slay the souls
of women , child and man
and raise the dead the torching head
to join the quest at hand
we are the villains of the deep
that sails the murky float
and will not rest until the death
of every single boat…
