Ahoy, Me Hearties!
I bet yâ€™all are curious as to why I summoned you on deck for a wee gathering and mingling. Well, it has come to me attention ye carousers areâ€¦ how shall I put itâ€¦ not amused with our most recent exploits. I smell the reek of mutiny infesting the lower decksâ€¦ So here I am, your very own, humble Captain:
-Are you not entertained?
-Didnâ€™t I treat you well?
-Was it the abundancy of grog?
-The brimful barrels filled with tobacco?
-The caring warmth of a bewitched siren while on shore leave?
-Or my generosity of splitting the booty fair and square?
Enlighten me senses:
Is this all you signed up for? Is this the pirate life as you imagined it would be? I challenge yâ€™all: which of you landlubbers dares to speak of mutiny and spill your own captainâ€™s blood to seize control over this ship?
Draw your cutlass right now or walk the plank and rest your pitiful existence in silence at the bottom of the seasâ€¦
Let me repeat my vows to this crew and this ship. I promised you an adventure and a life of great risk in return for spoils, riches and eternal fame.
We are the scourge of the Caribbean seas and we all know that dead men tell no tales - but itâ€™s the crawling fear of our next victim that will spread the Pirateâ€™s Taleâ€¦
Weigh anchor and hoist the mizzen, prepare the cannons and letâ€™s chase that Spanish Treasure fleet before we set course back to Tortuga.
