Pirate Moon

So still the rigging on a black calm sea
Sails unfurled cast shadows on wooden decks
Pirate ghosts walk afeared in silent plea
Lost souls that haunt tethered within the wrecks
Where Davy Jones accounting for their crimes
Spins gold doubloons preferring heads nor tails
Once long ago they sailed for better climes
Skull and crossbones rampant above black sails
Moonlight beams reflecting off cutlass blades
Inlet waves murmur of their darker deeds
Cutthroat honour soon their memory fades
Tunics once fine now dressed in salty weeds
The moon then hides behind the sailing clouds
Pirates then appear mourning in their shrouds
