Something's Fishy Here - Poem by Eugene Levich

I cast my fly to a saucy Irish Bass
Of green hair and red eye
The wind caught the fly
And flipped it in reverse
Hooking me square in the face
The ER doc speaking jocularly:
"You caught a big one I see."

At the racetrack I asked a trout
For a tip on Race No. Six
The nag came in last
I lost two bucks
Never ask for help from a trout.

I went to see an orthopaedic sturgeon
About intermittent claudication
He said your flipper's in poor repair
You need a flipping operation

Topic(s) of this poem: fishing, humor

    so, i learned? a new-to-me word, maybe.

    ALWAYS ask the mackerel at the race track. NEVER ask the 'suckers'.
