Limerick-The Great Fisherman-7

This fisherman went out in a kayak
In spite of warnings that sharks would attack
A huge shadow appeared
A predator most feared
The story told was, he never came back

The lights go down, and then Loke tells the tale of the fisherman....This is more than a Limerick and a cautionary tale. This reads like an opening salvo in what could be a great epic. I am thinking Melville, but with a shark, no whales. This is absolutely one of your best, Loke. A 10++++.
One should remain within the limits of safety, but adventure is beyond the limits, love may be a love of fishing is an adventure and sometimes adventure ends in such a tragedy. Well done, you wrote a story of a tragic adventure, otherwise we read stories of adventure that ended in a comedy.
this reminds me of one of my favorite stories: The Old Man and the Sea is a short novel written by the American author Ernest Hemingway in 1951 in Bimini, Bahamas. in Hemingway's SHORT novel, the fisherman came back, but (mostly) only the skeleton of his huge catch came back (to shore) . yours is one for MyPoemList. ha ha. ahh! bri ;)
I really feel sad for those who do not heed warnings and get trapped in a bad situation. In this case, the fisherman lost his life. So very sad. A Limerick that cautions man against foolishness. A Limerick to remember.
How sad...........! The moral of the story is...... Pay heed to experienced people's advice! Never ignore warnings of caution! A perfect limerick with a lesson! A huge 10
