Pirates of the Florida Keys

Lucky Mud
Maggie McKinney


On a visit to the Keys I realized that we always feel like pirates during our time there. I think most people feel the same way.


Coming out of the Keys

I look up in my rear view mirror

And see the blue green waters

Staring back at me

My heart has the pride

Of a native daughter

And I am smiling through my tears


A sailboat floats by

Over dark beds of coral

The mangrove islands in dark relief

A perfect blue sky

Blends in with the water

As I am leaving the Florida Keys


I can still see the pirate ship

Slipping out of the mangroves

Gliding up to an unwary foe

Swooping down like the cormorant diving

For his next meal

In the water below


We all still hope

For that thrill of adventure

That sends our hearts

Reaching up to our throat

In the Florida Keys

On the edge of the ocean

We all feel like pirates

Slipping on to the shore

(repeat first verse)
