Opalescent Rainbow Bass
Opalescent rainbow bass, slippery catfish large,
green banks of rivers, beyond the rich man's barge.
Guppies gallows, fishmonger agleam,
going fishing, Saturday. Catch me downstream.
Opalescent rainbow bass, slippery catfish large.
bring those bobbers, and peanut butter jars.
Hitherwards we traipse, little boy, while it’s still dark.
fishing with a determined grandpa is not just a lark.
It is four o’clock, time to hit the riverbanks.
Let us coax and coddle those catfish tanks.
They like to hide in a concealed shady spot.
if we don’t hurry, catch a fish, we will not.
