A Pirate Legend (Day 19)

Sing a song of sixpence
A pocket full of rye
Four and twenty blackbirds
Baked in a pie

As with many others, this little nursery rhyme
does not have such innocent beginnings. In the early 1700's, it actually started as a coded message used by the legendary pirate,  Blackbeard, to recruit new crew members.
