Drunken Pirate[edit]

You lived your life as a pirate, Did you choose?, Were you forced?, What age did you become one?. You sailed the seven seas as a normal, Sober pirate, Then one day, You find a bottle of alcohol, Were you peer pressured?, Did you choose to drink it?. It felt like that you could solve all of your problems when drunk!, Did it actually?, What did it do to you?, Are you happy with your choice?. And ever since that day, You've always been drunk. Did it become a bad habit or a good one?. One day, Your ship crashed, What caused it?. With all of your crew scattered across the land. Do you go find them?, Or forget about them?, Do you drink them away?. You decided to roam around as a drunk pirate, Still finding some of your stuff that is left in your satchel and you set sail to the land of where you crashed, Sharing your pirate training and culture to everyone else!, Or do you just forget about it?.
