Bass fishing on nearby creek
trying new rod I bought this week.
Got plenty of lures
that really ensures
a big catch if I don’t need to leak.
Creek waters are moving real fast
I’m not sure my bladder will last.
Got lure on the line
it’s reeling just fine
but deep water I failed to cast.
In an anxious and manly haste
a true cast I timely displaced.
Latched on to a nest
where hornets did rest
full bladder no longer encased.
