Need help with Pirate epitaphs

2760 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  boo who?
We are working on a dishonorable pirate graveyard for our side yard. I have come up with wording for the entrance sign but then my brain stopped. Need ideas for epitaphs that shows how they broke "The Code"

Entrance sign will read

"As you walk by, don’t shed a tear
O’er these sorry sailor’s bones
For here be only dishonorable pirates
Perhaps in death, they can atone.

Crimes against THE CODE, they done
(and better them than me)
Cursed to haunt fore’er more
On land, but ne’er by sea."

We need about 6 epitaphs. Long or short, male or female, rhyming or not, funny, serious or scary. We're flexible. Thanks!

I love rhymes, so I'm gonna give this a shot!

Here lies Black Bart,
A fellow who had an envious heart.
A chest of jewels he tried to steal ~
And so our Captain fed him to an eel.

This is the grave of Mary Pettigrew
She was a member of our crew.
We picked her up in Timbuktu ~
A friendly lass we thought we knew.
Til the day she tried to curse us with voodoo!

Here lies the body of Calico Jack
For fightin' & thievin' he had a knack
Was a time you could count on him to have your back
But then he helped our enemy attack

John Parke
In Hagerstown he did embark
Crept aboard when it was dark
Our Captain, he don't like a smuggler
The sharks thanked us for their supper

Ha ha! These are silly! Feel free to take any part you like. Good luck!
