DEATH IS THE FISHERMAN PHOTOS BY PHYLLIS HANSEN

DEATH CASTS HIS NET FOR ALL OF HUMANKIND
DEATH FAMILY ALTAR
Phyllis Hansen shares these images with the Museum Community. Photographs were taken at the Day of the Dead celebration at Hollywood Forever Cemetery

Death is a Fisherman

DEATH is a fisherman, the world we see
His fish-pond is, and we the fishes be;
His net some general sickness; howe'er he
Is not so kind as other fishers be;
For if they take one of the smaller fry,
They throw him in again, he shall not die:
But death is sure to kill all he can get,
And all is fish with him that comes to net.
by Benjamin Franklin, Founder of the United States of America
born 1706
taken by the Fisherman 1790
