Man vs Fish

He breached,
 grabbed the floating morsel,
The battle began, 
Who will win
The deep blue sea
Or the frying pan
Taut muscles strain,
Thought i won this race,
He spits the hook back in my face.

    Congratulations Carl... but it seems your fisherman should have washed his hands before baiting his hook. Fish are particular that way. YarnSpinner

    Nice poem about the big one that got away. I live close to the ocean, but I don't like fishing.

    I have had this happen a few times. Can't really blame the fish. The good news is he will be bigger the next time you catch him. Fun Poem, now I want to go fishing.
