I’d like to tell my story but
It strikes a note of fear.
I was resting with my eyes half shut,
Just fishing off the pier.
When out the blue a madman took
A hold of me and then
I saw he held a vicious hook.
I’d heard about these men!
I’m treated like a piece of meat,
Thrown cold into a cell.
Then kicked around by booted feet,
And slapped about as well.
With all my might, I hit him hard
To which he gave a shout.
As I escaped I left my card –

I like this poem because you put yourself in the perspective of a fish. It describes what the fish would feel like when we take it out of the water.
This is true, Nuwin. I thought it would be fun to write a poem from the perspective of the fish. I must say I do feel sorry for them sometimes. But I also love eating fish and chips!! Alys
The poem was amazing and I think the fish had a hard time. The poem flowed correctly and I like the rhyme.
Hi Ranulaka. I wrote this poem many years ago but I only recently finished it. It was tricky getting it to rhyme so I’m glad you enjoyed it.
This poem is fantastic, and I like the way you made the poem about a fish and a fisherman. 🎣🐟🎣. I still wonder what fish kind was the one in the story. I have seen fisherman before but I never knew that the fish would fight back like that.
Thanks, Tirath. I had lots of fun trying to write this poem. I wanted the reader to be surprised at the end when they realised it was about a fish. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a live salmon trout so I can’t tell you what they look like. PS: love the emojis. Alys 🐟🐟🐟🐟
