The Salty Ballad of Pirate Gary and Pirate Keith

It takes a certain breed of man, to tame the lusty sea / stout of heart, quick of mind, often legless from the knee.

Sometimes you just want to write a poem!

Comedy magazine Funny Haha asked for submissions on the theme “Across The Sea”, and my mind immediately travelled to a swashbuckling pirate demimonde. Inspired by Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes, Tin Tin, Monkey Island and doubtless other artifacts from my childhood, this was very fun to write. You can read it here.
