The Fisherman’s Plea

Before the new dawn breaks
I set sail on the great ocean
rowing my old wooden boat
drifting further from land
riding upon the waves
I cast my net into the water
praying for bounty
my fate eternally bound
to the kindness of Poseidon
what my net brings forth
keeps the hunger at bay
from me and my family
so, please forgive me
noble creatures of the sea
if I seem heartless
I honor you deeply
for you are our salvation
