A Farm Yarn

When we were young boys on our farm.
A fish tale never meant any harm,
We oft were given a look,
When from such a tiny brook,
We claimed a fish as long as your arm.

But then our neighbor named Meg,
Beat the fib and put us down a peg,
By claiming from the same brook,
With not a worm on her hook,
She caught a fish as long as your leg!

Well that truth was quite hard to beat,
Then Summer beat a hasty retreat. 
Winter changed the fishing world,
Meg turned from tomboy to girl.
And now this fishing tale is complete!

For John Freeman's "Fishing Limericks"

    Congratulations on your win, Rob. I will email the fish photo if you share your email address. I don't have any prints of it. Hoping to catch some record-breakers at the end of the month if my health allows me to take that three-day fishing trip. Love, Carolyn

    A fun tale, John! Love the ending.:) We have Spring fishing tournies here, but the fish are weighed. When my son was small he entered one. Caught a catfish, but put stones into its mouth to have it weigh more. Crafty kid...I only found out later. Nope, he didn't win. Best wishes to you and yours, Mikki
