A Real Pirate? (flash fiction)

A Real Pirate?

“When I was told we were being attacked by pirates, this wasn’t what I was expecting.”

“Don’t I look like a pirate?”

“Well with the eye-patch and the parrot on your shoulder yes you do, it’s just that pirates today generally use small fast boats instead of sailing ships, and are armed with Kalashnikovs rather than cutlasses.”

“They don’t understand the romance of being a pirate.”

“Ah yes, the romance of robbing people at sea.”

“Shiver me timbers, are you being sarcastic? If you’re not careful you’ll walk the plank!”

“Oh really?”

“Mark my words you landlubber, you’ll end up in Davy Jones’ Locker yet. I mean it!”

“Ooh I’m so scared.”

“Is that sarcasm again?”
