Talking Salmon

Poetic justice for a saved salmon


At the end of a long day, all the fisherman had caught was one small, red salmon. He was about to kill it when the salmon shouted, “Wait, I’m much too small!”

“Wow, a talking salmon,” the fisherman exclaimed. “What’s your name?”

“Rusty,” replied the salmon. “Please throw me back into the sea!” The fisherman did so.

About a year later, the man was fishing the same spot when he again caught Rusty! “Amazing,” exclaimed the fisherman, “What have you been doing since I last caught you?”

“I’ve been sitting on the wreck of the good ship Titanic writing poetry, it’s very inspirational there.”

The fisherman read some of the poems and was quite impressed. “These should be published,” he said. “Have you thought of a title for them?”

After some thought the fish said, “I’ll call them ’Salmon Rusty’s Titanic Verses.’ ”
