  • Death is a Fisherman
  • From my project "Songs For The Dead"- a collection of songs dealing with death and the different approaches to the subject.

    "Death is a Fisherman" by Benjamin Franklin

    Death is a fisherman, the world we see
    His fish-pond is, and we the fishes be;
    His net some general sickness; howe'er he
    Is not so kind as other fishers be;
    For if they take one of the smaller fry,
    They throw him in again, he shall not die:
    But death is sure to kill all he can get,
    And all is fish with him that comes to net.
