In honor of #TalkLikeAPirateDay and the release of “The Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,” holding a Pirate Poetry contest on Twitter.

So far (17 Sept. 2017 at 10 a.m.) we have:

A pirate I want to be,

Sailing the angry sea,

So fearsome and bold,

stealing all their gold,

That’s the life for me!

Ahoy! thar.

Life on th’ sea be hard ‘n rough

But pirate’s life chose me.

nigh n far X marks th’ spot!

Alas tis me duty t plunder that booty!
