The Dutchman

Deadman's Ship

By R F KPublished about a year ago Updated about a year ago 1 min read

Drum. Drum.

Dishonest deep-sea degenerates dread Dutchman's drums.

Disquieted depths demand degenerate dues.

Drum. Drum.

Dutchman's drowned descend.

Dammed deep-sea degenerates defend.

Drum. Drum.

Duelling dances,

Devastating duets.

Drum. Drum.

Doom defiled deep-sea degenerates' deck,

Destroying degenerates' dream dividend.

Devilish diamonds, devious doubloons, drop down deep.

Drum. Drum.

Defeated. Disarmed. Desolated.

Desperate degenerates deny dishonesty.

Drum. Drum.

Dutchman's drowned deplore deceivers.

Drum. Drum.


Debts defrayed.

    Visceral imagery. Love the pirate theme.
