A Pirate's Life For Me!

Photo of a ship mast by Nancy Zavada

"He sat upon the rolling deck
Half a world away from home,
And smoked a Capstan cigarette
And watched the blue waves tipped with foam.
He had a mermaid on his arm
An anchor on his breast,
And tattooed on his back he had
A blue bird in a nest."
Langston Hughes
