THE STURGEON

image

A man went fishing for a sturgeon
Fished all day and all night
But eventually he got one big bite
And
Down
He
Went.
To the bottom of the sea
So fast that it’s like dropping a rock
In water. He was fighting that hook
So hard that the hook finally snapped
SNAP!!
And he was free.

 

A HELPING HAND

The poem is about how much humans have advanced in life so much from living in caves and keeping warm with just a fire, to building houses and living in them and keeping our selves warm with a furnace. “Turn grass in to corn” “turning fire into rockets.” This society blames poor people for being poor and acting like it was there fault that there poor and do drugs, nut the reason is… Is that people get better opportunities on how there born and raised, the choices people make, if there born with a disability and etc. And people think that they deserve to be poor/ homeless cause of the choices they made in the past, by doing drugs, drinking a lot of alcohol to make them alcoholics and being drunk all the time and eventually wanting there all there money on drugs and alcohol. But people who have more, mostly don’t give the stuff that they don’t need… To the people who need them more than anything. Like food for example, how people have enough food for a family and still throw it away well people who live on the streets might die from starvation or dehydration.
That’s why the poem is telling to help people in need instead of helping the people who have everything in the world. To help people who need motivation to get up and do good in life or get better in life.
“We give a helping hand to people, to some people…”
Society today also has a lot of hate towards each other like in America how bad some people (police) treat African American people, just because of there colour. And North Korea who has a dictator named Kim Jung Un, who threatens anyone that he wants to threaten because the whole country is pretty much an army base. Again this poem tells everyone that other people need to help these people who deal with this type of stuff.
