Micro-Poem (No.3) Fish For Dinner

Fish For Dinner

by John Hansen © 2013

Lazing on the river bank

Sipping beer beneath a tree.

Fishing rod wedged in a rock,

I'm relaxed and worry free.

Suddenly the line goes taut,

A fish takes up the fight.

I jump up quick to grab the rod (and spill my beer)

Damn, ...*#%#* ..beans again tonight!

What’s the difference between a catfish and a lawyer?

After catching a speeder…

Policeman: “I’m sorry sir but do you know how fast you were going?!”

Speeder: “I was going the same speed as everyone else!”

Policeman: “Ever go fishing?”

Man: “Yeah…”

Policeman: “Ever catch ALL the fish?”

Thank you Flourish. I'll admit, fishing's not my forte.

I love this Jodah! I was there fishing with you and enjoying a cold one. Hopefully you had beans with wienies when you got home. At least that way you'd get a little protein. LOL Have a great weekend!

You might have missed the fish, but at least you had a good excuse to drink some beer. Great hub!

Thanks Linda, would love to be fishing and enjoying a cold one with you. Yes had to settle for beans with weenies unfortunately. You have a great weekend too.

True Mel,

Always need a good excuse to drink a few more beers. Thanks for your comments.
