The Fisher of Men

On the beach strolled a woman - ambitious!
She spied a man fishing - delicious!
“Ohhhh, your arms are so strong
and your rod is so long
I bet you catch hundreds of fishes!”

The fisherman looked with surprise
at this beautiful girl with blue eyes.
With words loved by men
she kept reeling him in,
for she always could spot a good prize!

Flirting words and a magical look
were her bait, and that’s all that it took!
The cute gal got her wish,
and if all men were fish,
all the best ones would be on her hook!

Reading your poem created a smile. Laughed so hard it took me a while. Your words certainly prove true, What a flirting fisherwoman can do… Most men would respond, to her cunning and guile. Good poetry… laughter is good for the heart. YarnSpinner
