Legends of the Shores

Smoke or salt

The raw, foul-smelling within. 

Dash of a bite

Beyond the shape of human.

Straying from home

To bring full nets

Of women.

Gutting and salting their catch.

Men sworn to protect

Tell chilling tales

Of our ancestors 

Celebrated in history

As the Legend of the Shores.

Looting, pillaging and stealing happiness has always been the source of livelihood for pirates. At least that’s what the stories lead me to believe. But no matter what the tale or the era, the victims always remain the same.
