In the concrete jungle,
Everyone running around as if they've got spurs that go "jingle, jangle, jingle",
They've got places to be, and things to do,
So when you need an escape, what's to do?
Fantasy, anime, music, writng, ect...
And thats where I discovered a monster,
...Orcs! Tough, beautiful and unusual, and a strong sence of loyalty and community,
For which I found an affinity.
The early days of the internet,
Saw the rise of chatrooms, and unsernames with every combination of the alphabet
The signature, innocence, of the early web, pure.
It started as a whisper,
In my soul, and as long as I can remember,
I have always longed for the sea,
Gentle, and mighty.
Books on famous pirates, skulls, skulls and crossbones, Pirates of the Carribean, Pirates Band of Misfits, The Little Mermaid, Aquamarine (gem, and movie),
And marine science, and all the sea's beauty.
I have always had an affinity for mermaids, jellyfish, shells, the deep sea, and...pirates!
So free to do and take what they want, live on the beautiful, rocking, sea,
And such a sense of loyalty.
Three years ago,
I fell for the sweetest, kindest, man, and my heart did overflow,
At the time, I was 19, and he was 66,
I pointed out to my mom, brother and friends, whenever I saw the number 66,
Then the next year, it was 67,
Pointed out every 67,
Then last year, was 68,
The year I made Orc_Pirate_68
(And this year, is 69,
68 to commerate the time,
I joined to write poetry (mainly about him)).
