Fishing Limerick

This fisherman, we’ll just call Mike Was fishing for Great Northern Pike He would throw in his line But time after time It came back with nothing he’d like When I was a wee little lad I went out fishing with dad I caught a big trout And was dancing about When he threw him back in I got mad I said Dad why did you let him go I could take him to school don't you know Now I just can't conceive That my friends will believe If I haven't got something to show Contest: Limericks about fishing -3rd place finish By: Mdailey
