Fishin' - Poem by Charles Tomar
One hot day, being as bored I as was, I went looking for some fun,
So I decided to go fishing, in hopes that I’d catch the big one.
The sun was shining; it was a beautiful day,
I wasn’t catching much but soon I’d find a way.
And it really wasn’t long ‘til the fish started biting,
Which brings us to the story about which I’m writing.
They came so fast I could hardly reel them in;
Big ones, small ones, and one with a fin.
As I said before I wanted the very best,
Since the fish were abundant, I was picky on my quest.
I threw back countless numbers of fish,
Only a perfect fish, could satisfy my wish.
I eventually found a fish that seemed to be the one,
But with my luck I certainly wasn’t done.
The best fish around it just couldn’t have been,
So I set it in the water and let it swim again.
As soon as it was gone, the biting suddenly ceased,
Except for a few tiny ones that had to be released.
And so it occurred me that on my one chance on a very beautiful day,
I caught the best fish in the sea, but I let it get away...
