Poem: Four strong fishermen,

Four strong fishermen,
four young men,
two sets of brothers,
good honest workers –
all gone from the village in one day.

What a loss to the families.
What a loss to the community.
Who will replace them?
Where can you find four such young men
in a crisis?

One minute they were there,
the next they had gone –
it was as sudden as that.
Such a shock.
Such a devastating event.
