Jigger


Jigger was a fisherman
and only had one wish
he really really wanted
to catch a friggin Fish

he fished for 39 years
didn't even get a nibble
after all his tears
he mouth began to dribble

On one warm sunny afternoon
he drew out his rod, was late June
low and behold on his line was a fish
after, he saw it was dead,
he had only one more wish
that he would never catch another fish

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
