A poem for Independence Day. Author unknown.

Behold the fisherman.


John catching salmon from a sub

He riseth up early in the morning

and disturbeth the whole household.


Mighty are his preparations.


He goeth forth full of hope,

returning when the day is far spent.


Smelling of strong drink

and the truth is not in him.

Happy Independence Day from Gink and Gasoline!

  1. Alas, not my poem. But happy to quote it. Has been around for many many years, by that famous poet Anon.

    Happy 4th Louis.
