Ian Garrick, he sailed the Seven Seas or Captain Redbeard, as he's known to you and me He loved riches, as well as flesh and wine But death and destruction are what filled most of his time
Captain Redbeard, despised and feared Ian Garrick, he died at sea The Crimson Captain, he came to be The Dread Phantom Pirate King Without Mercy
The King’s Commander, the mightiest to sail Remembered just by title in his enemy's folktale Died in battle, attacked to no avail But still saw the captain fall Beyond the Pale
His eyes were gold as fire Demise, his sole desire His eyes were gold as fire Demise, his soul desired
In nightmares, Ian Garrick lives Captain Blood-N-Gore The images his name still gives of Horror, Hell and War Are bound to silent darkness In the Depths of Nevermore Until a poor fool summons them In suffering, Reborn
Part of a much larger literary piece I'm working on.
