Kayak Fishing Surprise

Ole Les set out by kayak from the shore

Big blue marlin rose from the ocean floor

  Nipped his bait, gave Les a tow

  Water-logged craft sank below

Friends shook their heads and said, "No Les, no more"

Written for John Freeman's "Fishing" limerick contest
Okay, the man's name wasn't Les ,but this video shows two kayaks being towed 11 
miles by marlins.  I took a little poetic license with the ending too.  Both men 
survived.  If you fish you will be amazed by this video:

    Hahaha, good one. Shame on you for sending poor Les to a water grave in this poem, you heartless person, you. lol. Heaven knows how I've managed to miss reading your works thus far. From the couple I've read now I have but one comment: geez!!! Good luck with the contest. ^__^

    diane, it's not a calorie overload, not even at a foot long!! That one guy, the one used as their spokesperson, used to eat 2 or 3 subways a day to lose like a hundred pounds. If you want to gain weight try my special diet. the Seefood diet. You see food and you eat it. I can give ya all the details . I did it really good when I was a youn'un!!!
