The Fishing Trip

I thought lets go fishing fancying a fish pie or maybe fish and chips that would do the trick I set off, rod and bucket full of worms in my hands found a good spot to fish by the rocks on the beach Patiently I waited for a bite then my rod dipped and bucked soon I had four nice whoppers flapping around in my bucket Needing to answer call of nature I slipped in between the trees alas when I returned I found one happy pelican looking full An empty bucket he'd scoffed the lot I sighed as I chucked a stone it missed him by a country mile no fish for supper I had no more worms written 06/17/2013 contest Gone Fishing sponsor Caleb Smith
