Seafaring Sunday: Blackbeard's Ruminations

Such a day... rum all out. Our company somewhat sober. A damned confusion amongst usual Rogues a-plotting. Great talk of separation. So I looked for a sharp prize.

Such a day... took one, with a great deal liquor on board so kept the company hot, damned hot, then all things went well again.

Ahoy, Pauline! Such a day indeed! And another great Don Maitz painting too, Pirate Queen.

Ahoy, Timmy! I'm as yet not entirely on board with this stuff being authentic but it's funny either way.
