ODE TO FISHERMEN

ODE TO FISHERMEN

YOU CAN SEE HIM ON ANY GIVEN DAY;

PRETTY MUCH DRESSED THE SAME OLD WAY

HIS LUCKY HAT SHIRT OR BOTH

SITTING BY A LAKE OR IN A BOAT

HE’S ALWAYS THERE FOR THE BIG CATCH

OR JUST TAKE HOME A GREAT BIG BATCH

WHETHER CATFISH, CRAPPIE, PERCH, OR BREAM

IT DOESN’T REALLY MATTER TO HIM.

JUST FOR THE THRILL, HE’S UP BEFORE DAWN

WHEN THE BOBBER GOES DOWN, THE GAME IS ON.

PERHAPS TO FEEL THE STRING PULL IN HIS HAND

IT’S MAN AGAINST FISH, AND FISH AGAINST MAN.

NO DOUBT, IT’S A BATTLE OF WILL

BE IT PLAIN LUCK, OR JUST SKILL.

THE RUSH YOU GET WHEN THE FISH IS HOOKED,

THE TASTE OF IT ALL WHEN IT IS COOKED.

AT THE END OF THE DAY, EVENING IS COME

HE’LL GATHER HIS GEAR HEADING FOR HOME.

WHETHER HE CAUGHT ALL, OR HE CAUGHT NONE

HE SO MUCH ENJOYED IT, IT WAS SUCH FUN.

OH YOU CAN BET HE WILL TELL YOU A TALE,

HOW HE LOST A BASS AS BIG AS A WHALE.

WHETHER TRUTH OR FABLE, HE WON’T SAY.

IT WAS THE BIG ONE THAT GOT AWAY.

HE’LL BE BACK TOMORROW, TO DO IT ALL AGAIN;

CUZ IT’S AN ODE TO A FISHERMEN, AND THAT’S THE END……….
