I could see the pictures of each page in this sketch...real nice dialect.

This sure is different! Consistent dialect, although, (for me) I found it hard to read through. Terrific job on this one, though - right on topic. Blessings. Jo

No spot on the mantel for this one...but one of those singing trout plaques! He's singing "another win for Kenn..."

Well done, creative, consistant. A little difficult to follow at first, but your consistancy of the fishermans speach made it easier. Excellent job. God bless.

I thought this was lots of fun. I especially liked the "Suffer-Faced Flounder" stanza. I could just picture a fussy lady in a big feathered hat. I do admit, it was a tad hard to read in places, but a winner in spite of that. Well done.

Too funny - and some doses of truth :)

This was pretty funny, and I envy your sense of rhythm and meter. Excellent use of dialect throughout. Wouldn't be surprised if this placed.

Oh, the ironies and truths to be read here! Deep. I loved the dialect / rhythm... perfection. You probably already know about the contraction / possessive error in line 5 of stanza 3.

I found the "salty fisherman" dialect easy to read -- maybe because I just finished reading "Old Man and the Sea" with my son. I loved the story as a pure fishing story, and for its deeper meaning as well.

Lots of fun here, and a tongue in cheek laugh at church members & sinners alike :)

Just plain fun. Your talent overwhelms me that every line flows. You are very gifted and it is wonderful to read your work!

I really like this. It is so different, humorous, yet true. A true winner.

I always love your stuff, but this one because you were able to keep up the dialect and rhythm and meter all at once. Truly masterful.
