Perry the Pirate

Old Perry lost an eye in a fight in Barbados

He lost his leg to a shark that swam too close

He got a hook for a right hand

When a mutiny didn’t go as planned

He had scurvy three different times

But lived through them all without any limes

He fell overboard and was deserted near Port Royal

But to his captain he stayed loyal

He robbed and pillaged as good as any

Even though his troubles were many

He was shot three times in a battle at sea

With his last breath he whispered “A pirate’s life for me!”
