Love from the UK

Well, I’m pretty sure I’m not the first, and certainly won’t be the last person to say I’m a big fan of you guys and the show. I live in the UK though, so unfortunately I don’t think I will ever get the chance to meet any of you, but know that all your fans here pray for your safety every year as well. I have written a little something, which is dedicated to each and every one of the men who have ever appeared on the show, and those who haven’t, but still do the job. I don’t profess to being a literary genius, it’s more a hobby. Nevertheless I hope that you like it. Thank you again for taking the time to read this.

Stay Safe, With love from the UK

We’re Just Fishermen
A few years ago I watched a show.
It’s one I’m sure that a lot of you know.
It’s called Deadliest Catch, but between you and me,

We like to call it DC.
So what’s it about, I hear you ask?
To tell you, well, it’s no easy task.
It tells the stories of some very brave men,

But they say “We’re just fishermen”
They fish for crabs, King’s & Snow,
How they do it, I’ll never know.
In a place that is brutal, harsh and free.

It’s name is The Bering Sea.
They make us laugh, they make us cry.
Sometimes I often wonder why?
It’s a bunch of men I’ve never met,

I live in hope I may do yet.
The pranks they pull, the jokes they tell,
Is it true, that crab farts smell?!
We feel the pain of every man,

You’re in the hearts of every fan.
We hope that you stay safe and sound,
Until you make it back to solid ground.
For your grief and sorrow, we share with you.

Even though you never asked us to.
When I thought of all the jobs out there,
I was so naïve, I didn’t care,
Fishing is hard, and hard as hell,

But it’s shocking to know people die as well.
So next time you eat crab, remember them,
A bunch of Sea hardy Fishermen.
For while we enjoy the stories they tell,

Only they will truly know the Bering Sea Hell.
