Details: This poster shows a skull and two crossed swords, similar to the Jolly Roger flag. The image is made up of the lyrics to 15 men on Dead Man's Chest.
Dead Man's Chest (also known as Fifteen Men On The Dead Man's Chest or Derelict) is a fictional sea shanty originally from Robert Louis Stevenson's novel Treasure Island (1883). The chorus begins 'Fifteen men on the dead man's chest, Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum'. Some researchers believe Stevenson based the shanty on an actual song. The Jolly Roger is the name given to any of various flags flown to identify a ship's crew as pirates. The flag most usually identified as the Jolly Roger today is the skull and crossbones, being a flag consisting of a skull above two tibiae set in an x-mark arrangement on a black field. This design was used by several pirates, including Captains Edward England and John Taylor.
