George the Landlubber

by Laurence Simon

George was a pirate, but he wasn’t a very good pirate.
He was completely clueless when it came to the jargon of his profession.
For example, he had no idea what “landlubber” meant.
Was it a parrot species?
Maybe it was some kind of sea monster, he thought.
But then, why would his crewmates be calling all the townspeople that?
Or, for that matter, George , when he screwed something up really badly.
At the next port, he went to the library, and he asked for a Pirate-to-English dictionary.
“You are a total landlubber,” said the librarian, and threw George out.
