To Captain Edwina La Belle, The Red

Arrrrr..Shiver me timbers

Adventure on the bounding sea,
Sounds so much like fun to me.

For I'm a salty sailor too,
Got me a wondrin what to do.

Join up with the Eds,
Or sail with you?

Pee Wee seems a nice enough bloke,
With the Jersey Devil could get a toke.

Fair maidens Edvard wants to save,
'fraid someone's bound fer a watery grave.

But every bordello still needs a slave,
Methinks I'll remain yore rogish knave!

A floggin now and then might not be bad,
Compared to other things I've had.

Of my sea tales could write a book,
Just so you'll know, I also cook.

Are you sure you can sign an X Walt?
The fair ladies of the isle have ask me to join
the lot. I can wash dishes, but don't do, clean fish's
Me eyes can't stay off of boobs though, I wonder ifin
that would be a problem?

Yes, doooooooooooo come along for the ride, Sir Salt. I've jumped straight in with both feet... only to find I am probably waaaaaaaaaaaay out of my depth and need a lot more flesh on me skinny bones to be able to swing a cutlass acurately or bust out me bustier like them other Pandora Pirates... but I could practice me splicing skills in your Galley and exercise a bit of floggin on a rump steak or two to start with... Just until I get me L-plates off... Don't go offering your services to those other ruff boys when us girls could do with a Jack Sparrow around (ooops... perhaps I'm not sposed to say that...) Pertty Please?? Kutglass Kitty Kate xx

Just so you'll know, I also cook.

Are you sure you ain't an Ancient Ed??!! All Eds can cook very well, and sail. And most of us have been slaves at one point or another to some danged woman.

PS You really look like The Jersey Devil in that picture!

Would be no dilemma
if ye be thinking straight
So Salty Dog Walt
See Miss Kitty, me first mate
and make your X on the dotted line
you'd make a bordello slave so fine
we could use us a man
who can use his sword
and cook us a grand great dinner
so welcome ye Salty Dog, aboard

Aye matie, I shared the salt sea with the storm clouds more than I care to remember but you make me want to start packing me sea bag again and grabbing me foul weather gear for just one more sail.

This one is from Ed the Elder onboard the Enchantess, I thought that you were on your way to Madagascar to stay there and no go messing with my Red Head La Belle...or you heart Sir (if I can call a rogue that) will taste the point of my sword.
