Poseidon’s Fishermen Not the Fishermans Prayer

POETRY

The ravaged seas around the world poem

Thank you o Lord for the fishermen.

Thank you o Lord for the fishermen.

Thank you o Lord for the fisherman
Who pollute and abuse your beloved sea.
Casting off their dragnets,
Discarded polystyrene floats,
Light bulbs, gas tanks and lighters.

May they dwell suffering
Within be the kingdom
Of Posiedens wrath,
Cetus gorging on their innards
Only to spew them out for the Nereids
To stuff them back into their empty stomachs
To be fodder for Cetus once more.

May they be released from their torture
After teachings of humility, pain
And respect O Lord,
To roam the seas as warnings to wasteful fishermen
To never again defile your beloved seas.

Thank you for reading. J.
