Pop fished all day to fill his boat
With fresh fish from the sea
A quick mug up his only break
With lassie bread and tea

Though the work is very hard
It always brings Pop joy
For he has loved the ocean
Since he was just a boy

Time to clean the piles of fish
Each and every one
Spread with salt then on the flake
To dry in wind and sun

Many times the fish are turned
For each side needs warm rays
All the family comes to help
As this takes many days
