Judge Knot

Some people think knots are for boy scouts and sailors
Cowboys, hangmen,Anglers and whalers
But knots have many jobs to do
To make this point I'll name a few

turning two heavy ropes into one?
The Carrick bend will get that done.

Do you need a loop at your rope's end?
On the figure eight you can depend.

Are you scaling walls of the steepest pitch?
You'ld be wise to perfect your Munter hitch.

Are you fishing one line, but wishing for two?
The Bimini twist can make that come true.

Please judge your knots by function and form
For if you tie them wrong
Your fish could be lost, Your boat could get tossed
Or your plummet could be mighty long

Here comes the judge contest

    How creative, Joe! As a seagoer I had to learn to tie many knots. What you say about losing the fish happened many times when the knot was not properly tied. The title really caught my attention. My entry, ironically, was Judge Not. We are separated by just one letter. But please, tell me what the Munter hitch is! LOL Love, carolyn (Did a speech on my obsession with knot tying in college, so you know this poem goes to my favorites.)
