Fisherman's Friend - Poem by Frank Freimuth

They'd sailed for an hour, maybe for two,
the fisherman and his friend,
when a storm arose, as bad as hell,
the ship swaying to and fro.

Then a huge wave came, born by the storm,
and the fisherman went by the board.
He cried and struggled, lost in the sea
as in a puddle struggles the worm.

Oh, my dearest mate, please help me fast,
lest my fucking life here ends!
The friend ran away and came back at last -
bringing fishermen's friends.

    Lovely narrative piece nicely penned with a tinge of humour. Your knack for gracing your poems with beautiful rhyme scheme is not only appropriate, but poetically remarkable. Thanks for sharing Frank and do remain enriched. (Report)Reply
