Captain Bligh the Beast!byUncle Pervey©
There was mutiny on the Bounty,
And it was plain for all to see.
Captain Bligh was the most wicked man,
Who'd ever sailed the Seven Seas!
He was the most brutal taskmaster,
And never cared for his seamen.
He'd take an unholy pleasure,
While his whip had someone screamin'!
He treated his men like sub-humans,
And would flog them without reason.
He thought he was like "God Almighty,"
And accused his men of treason!
The desperation of the sailors,
And some of the officers too.
Should have had Captain Bligh put to death,
But to their country they were true!
Captain Bligh was a merciless beast,
He sailed across thousands of miles.
His only thought was "condemnation,"
And made it to the British Isle!
The Admiralty paid him honor,
And condemned to death all his men!
For the "Mutiny on the Bounty,"
The men lost their lives in the end!!
