Stop - Look - and Listen

A fish and a turtle were out at sea the fish darted by and said 'look at me' I can swim fast and scoot, can even swim faster than you, too boot. The turtle plodded along and said to the fish...'this is where I belong' I may be slow and not very fast but I can get where I want to go, and won't finish last. The fish ran along, swift as could be and taunted the turtle to get out of his sea. The turtle said the sea belongs to us all it was meant to be free. The fish swam by and said watch, I can catch that fish...its smaller than me. But the turtle warned there are troubles sometimes in the sea. The fish only laughed and grabbed the small fish when suddenly a line went tight and a hook was set.... and he couldn't get free.
