School Is In

Walking to the end,
of this old wooden dock.
The tranquility of the pond,
is disturbed, 
with a wizz and a plop
Ripples ,run from this,
bright orange bobber.
To town has come,
the foolish fish, robber.
Beneath the surface,
Old Tom sees,
a flash of gold ,
and wriggly brown.
For the reaper ,
has come,
to this watery town.
One young Bream,
plays hooky,
 from the school.
Ole Tom yells wait,
don't go there,
you fool.
Ah ...but the promise,
of a free ,
high protein meal.
Has already sealed,
the poor fingerlings deal.
With a splash ,
and flash of silver,
he goes.
The young fish stare in horror,
but 0le Tom knows.
Stay in school,
because the first,
shiny thing that comes your way,
may have a catch.
