A tale of steampunks, pirates and poets, brought to you by Big Up Words

Steampunk pirate poets

I entered the pirate drinking-den to find a mechanical maid was serving… tea? 

Steampunk pirate poet performance

Poet pirates performed. They were joined on stage by the mechanical maid.

Sally and Ivor, steampunk pirate poets I helped Erik the Viking pirate and musical pirate Ivor to organise games of the mechanical maid’s devising.

Ivor, Erik and Sally, steampunk pirate poets.

Poor Erik slumped a bit under the weight of responsibility.

But, shiver-me-timbers, a jolly fine time was had by one and all.
