Pirate Haiku

Farming’s not for me
I want a flashy wardrobe
And to see the world

Now I’m a pirate
I plunder fat merchant ships
Far away from land

I steal the best wine
And gold and jewels galore
In outlandish clothes

Caviar and limes
And every kind of seafood
Stain my pretty clothes

There’s no laundry here
And no beautiful wenches
And no privacy

But there’s bright sunshine
And dangerous winds and rain
And soon, more plunder!

It's shadesong's fault, for providing a link to a pirate haiku contest. Since I haven't yet figured out the imbedding links thing, the link is at the bottom of the post that includes her story about sending pirates off at near light speed.
