Pirate Crew Paper Doll Collection
Thank you all who have lived to tell the tale.
you bedraggled crew of people with missing parts.
lopped off by voyages into the unknown.
walked the plank into dark waters.
fed chemo and now wear scarf.
talking around grog of the sickness of sway.
now gathering on the island having landed safe.
yet tougher and tattooed.
i am now conscripted to this pirate crew.
my initiation day drawing nigh
