“Aye, 'tis a hard luck life, that o' the buccaneer. What a man speak on open water, away fro' his mo'her's care, he'd best mean... for the seadog be a hard one, an' not prone to dilly-dallyin'. The prattler lettin' the cat out o' the bag meets Davey Jones quicker'n his hammock at turn-in. 'Tis best to keep hatches battened, an' the tail o' the eye on the dooty at hand. Many a swaggert hast kicked at the way o' things, an' lost his soul in the brine for it all. Fish food. Ach! Look lively now! The Master looms! Learn more than Arrrrgh!”
