Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!

More than fish

Day after day I toil
Casting out my net
Launching into the deep
Praying Lord send me some fish

All night, all night
I did try
The haul is empty
My body weary

Launch into the deep
You say
Lord, I have already tried that and failed
But because you say so, I will again

My nets burst with the great haul
Never before seen in all my years
Who are you Lord, have mercy on me
I am only a sinful man.

Do not be afraid, you say to me
More than fish, more than fish
I want you to be a fisher of men!
