Renda Writer - The Other Line


I saw a man
Fishing
Off the side of the pier

Fishing for a fish
And then...
His cell phone rang

He picked it up
And began talking

Cell phone in one hand
Fishing pole in the other

And then...
The tip of his pole
Started bending

He got a bite

And then...

He said
To the person on the phone

'Let me call you back,
I've got someone on the other line'

    So true! I have fished with my business partner for twenty years and he is always on the phone. I have seen him land a twenty pound salmon whilst carrying on a conversation with his phone wedged between his ear and his shoulder! . (Report) Reply

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
