Hoist The Colours

Yo, ho, haul together,
hoist the colors high.
Heave ho,
thieves and beggars,
never shall we die.

The king and his men
stole the queen from her bed
and bound her in her Bones.
The seas be ours
and by the powers
where we will we’ll roam.

Yo, ho, haul together,
hoist the colors high.
Heave ho, thieves and beggars,
never shall we die.

Some men have died
and some are alive
and others sail on the sea
– with the keys to the cage…
and the Devil to pay
we lay to Fiddler’s Green!

The bell has been raised
from it’s watery grave…
Do you hear it’s sepulchral tone?
We are a call to all,
pay head the squall
and turn your sail toward home!

Yo, ho, haul together,
hoist the colors high.
Heave ho, thieves and beggars,
never shall we die.

Latest Somali pirate hijacking update: US warships and air assets on the way

By Michelle Malkin  

“…Latest wire and cable TV reports say US warships and air assets are being sent to the scene of the Maersk Alabama hijacking by Somali pirates. Captain is reportedly being held hostage on a lifeboat near the vessel.

Let us hope the Obama White House is prepared to use our military forces to “achieve” something more than “TV shots.”

Update: Crewman talks to CNN about the captive Captain. …”

Obama’s pirate problem; Update: US crewmen regain control?; Maersk will NOT confirm; 1 pirate reportedly in custody; captain still being held?

By Michelle Malkin 

 

It’s another Gird Your Loins moment for the Obama administration.

Somali pirates have now hijacked a U.S.-flagged ship with 20 American crew members on board – the first in “recent memory” according to military officials. The vessel is one of the DoD’s top shipping contractors. The vessel was taking humanitarian aid to Mombasa.

What will BO do?

So far, the White House response has been weak. Brian Faughnan says Obama needs to take a page from the Russian playbook.

Ed Morrissey wonders what DHS secretary Janet Napolitano will rename the problem? “A stowaway problem? On-demand course correction?” …”

Hang ‘Em High

“Hang ‘Em High is a 1968 Western film directed by Ted Post starring Clint Eastwood. It is the story of an innocent man, Jed Cooper (Eastwood), who survives a lynching by nine men, and becomes a US Marshal to see that justice is done. …”

 Hoist the Colours

 “Hoist the Colours” is a song in the feature film Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End from the Pirates of the Caribbean film franchise. It was composed by Hans Zimmer and Gore Verbinski, and it featured lyrics by Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio. This song fulfills a tradition in the trilogy that every film contains a pirate song, although this song features far more heavily than “A Pirate’s Life for Me” in Curse of the Black Pearl or “Dead Man’s Chest” in Dead Man’s Chest, as its melody is used throughout the film as a major theme. …”

“…This song was sung in the opening scene of the movie, wherein a young cabin boy associated with piracy sang it while waiting to be hanged. All the prisoners then started to join in the singing. It is then reprised by Elizabeth Swann when she enters the Singapore waterways via canoe to meet with Barbossa.

In the film, “Hoist the Colours” is known among all the pirates of the world and refers to what occurred at the first meeting of the Brethren Court. The song spreads the message throughout the Pirate world that a meeting of the “Brethren Court” must be called. The song seems to somehow resonate through pieces of eight, as seen when Sao Feng holds a piece of eight by his ear when Barbossa gave it to him. It refers to the binding of Calypso in human form by the Brethren Court in order to control her domain. In the opening scene the boy sings “the king and his men” meaning the pirate king and his men “stole the queen from her bed, and bound her in her bones” trap the queen of the sea, Calypso, and bind her in Tia Dalma’s body. “The seas be ours, and by the powers, where we will, we’ll roam” the sea belongs to man now.

When Elizabeth sings in Singapore, she sings of men living and those who are dead and some who ‘sail on the sea’ referring to the pirate lords and their whereabouts. She sings of ‘keys to the cage’ (the nine pieces of eight that will free Calypso from her body) and a ‘devil to pay’ (Davy Jones told the pirates how to bind Calypso, and his price was the agreement of the pirates to never unbind her). ‘Fiddler’s Green‘ is a legendary, blissful place to which the pirates refer, where they could escape from the world’s problems. (Traditionally, it is the afterlife found by drowned sailors.) She then starts another verse about a bell raised from its ‘watery grave’ (the song that calls the Brethren Court) urging the pirates to listen and turn ‘their sails to home’ (calling the pirate lords to Shipwreck Cove).

The melody of the song’s chorus is incorporated in a number of musical pieces played throughout the film, including a full orchestral version played during the climactic battle between the Flying Dutchman and the Black Pearl. …”
