What is a pirate ? A pirate is a person who attacks and robs ships at sea. A pirate’s life would involve villainous activities like threatening, killing, stealing and taking hostages from boats that are on their own at sea. Most of the pirates time was taken up by sailing on the high seas. Many pirates would wear hoop earrings, as they believed the weight of them on their earlobes would prevent seasickness. Pirates were also seen wearing eye patches, peg legs and hooks, this is because life at sea was very rough and would often lead to them losing body parts. The food on the ships was very poor and most pirates died at an early age.
What do pirates eat ? • When I think about pirates I think of one eyed men eating meat with knives and sipping up sauce with their fingers, snarling under their breath while walking around with a goblet of rum in their hand.
