Funeral Poems For A Fisherman "Hook, Line And Sinker"






As I sat upon a rock

 With the waters breaking around me

I pondered matters of life and death

A-fishing by the sea


I was waiting for the tide to come in

Which would drown others in despair

So let me reassure you now

How much I’ve enjoyed being a being here


I know you know I’m still spinning lines

To help you on land at this time

Please swallow them… hook, line and sinker

Because you’re the real catch… of me the fisher
