Poem - The legend of Fisher's Ghost

Frederick George James Fisher
A convict he had been
Arrived on the Atlas transport
In the year 1816.

Freedom soon was his
And Campbelltown showed much charm
That this was where he settled
On his thirty acre farm.

Disaster struck June 17
The year 1826
Fred Fisher had disappeared
So a twenty pound reward was fixed.

Then a ghost was seen pointing
To the banks along the creek
Blood was found on the bridge
From where the ghost did speak.

On the last day of October
Fred´s body had been found
Black natives solved the mystery
Buried three feet underground.

George Worrall was arrested
Convicted by the Supreme Court
His life on earth was terminated
Justice had been bought.
