Fishing was Never so Easy
Listen up you fishing freaks,
there’s an easier way to get a catch,
I’ve been doing it for weeks
and its success has as yet no match.
There’s no waiting, no squirming bait,
and never any off-the-hook escape.
All I do is cast my eye and target
the daily catch at the fish market.
Has it made an honest man of me?
In truth I must confess not exactly.
And though I leave the house with rod
and bait, (not to do so would be odd
since I tell the wife I’m on my way
to a favorite place to fish all day.)
The truth is I get no further than
the market where I carefully scan
the days selection, then make my way
back home to a tasty fish fry,
and best of all I never have to lie
about the many that got away.
