The Fisherman's Death - Poem by Chuck Audette

he'd hooked his last
perch, pickerel and bass
pike and the like
never more, that sudden strike

never again will his body feel
the tug of the pole, the whirl of the reel
lowered down, in a way he's found
a new, uncharted fishing ground
where the worms anxiously await
their final revenge - and he's the bait

    All my life I've loved to fish,
    but suddenly I have one wish.
    That when my life becomes post dated......
    I think I'd like to be cremated!

    An original piece that incorporates your wry sense of humour complete with an effective twist. Again very visual - liked the flow and ryhthm of this line 'the tug of the pole, the whirl of the reel' which caught (no pun intended!) the action so well. Warm wishes, Justine. (Report)Reply

    Very clever, you sly dog. I had never thought about it in those terms before - the revenge of the worms! (Report)Reply

    I don't know... Methinks there will be a large tome of the 'Chuck-est' poems around out for Christmas. Should be! No one compares to you, friend! Thanks for a big bedtime guffaw! ! ! : ] Est (Report)Reply
