Treasure Island

Langston Hughes

(1 February 1902 – 22 May 1967 / Missouri)

Catch


Big Boy came
Carrying a mermaid
On his shoulders
And the mermaid
Had her tail
Curved
Beneath his arm.


Being a fisher boy,
He’d found a fish
To carry—
Half fish,
Half girl
To marry.

And how sleep seems a goodly thing
