Why do you condemn dear brother

The pirates of distant shores when

The men in our midst rob us with impunity

Why do you abhor the pirates of distant lands

Because they are not dressed respectably like ours?

Why do you vilify the pirates of high seas, brother, because they are not bound by our laws

The pirates amidst us are honoured by the powerful and respected by the law

Why do you denigrate brother the pirates of the open seas because they hide like cowards

The pirates among us walk with dignity and head held high

Why are you scared dear brother of fighting the pirates of the ocean because they know not the rules of engagement

Piracy among us wears Prada and wages covert wars in the courts of law
