One Hundred and Forty Four

What is known of this fickle fellow? This
Catch we did haul in with a load of fish
Upon the shore where we did fall in bliss
At the feet of the master who did wish
Us to come with him and become fishers
Of men, what is known of him? In deed no
Knowledge have I of him, but he assures
Me that he is not of evil, no show
Of blemished spot does he have upon him,
Or sign of ill intent among other
Brothers; and many he has, at a whim
I count one hundred and forty three. Sure
Knowledge we may not have. But we
Know that he is good, and came from the sea.
