Hook Line Thinker


I was reeled in
Not knowing if I was
Swimming...or broken
I swallowed your line
Starving for what you fed me
Dumbstruck and wounded
There was no fight,
No chance that I would not
Succumb to your lures
Maybe here was my chance
To witness saviour
But now I see
You have chosen
To fillet and release
My heart.

And there's plenty more fish in the sea.
For those like you.

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
