the sailor packed in brine

off to the horizons

tattoos on his arms

a life so heavy

ale, whiskey

a man of the sea

a pirate

a lady in every port

leaving her nylons on a bedpost

dirty dirty people

living by the sea

dirty dirty animals

in every port

covered in brine

the pirate of an old seashore

starfish and barnacles

on his beard

smelling of sardines and to wet his whistle

one more time
