Death is a Fisherman
a poem by Benjamin Franklin

Franklin Benjamin - Poem



DEATH IS A FISHERMAN
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. 


Benjamin Franklin
