Remington Fish ('a very fishy poem')

( I wrote this poem a while back for my five children as a bit of good fun.)

Have you heard of Remington Fish?

He's a legend on these lakes

No fisherman could catch him

He'd never take the bait


What a cunning fish this Remington

He would swim for all to look

And dance his way through waters deep

Eating meat right off your hook


Now many brave and bold a man

Would scheme to catch this trout

But he would baffle and bewield them

While swimming all about


Oh Remington you clever fish

Why don't you take a bow

The way you keep eluding nets

No other fish knows how!

So Remington, you lovely fish

Why don't you come for tea?

I've filled a pot of water

Pretend your in the sea


I must decline your offer sir, was Remington's reply

I'm dining with the sharks tonight

To teach them how to spy

But you could dine with us instead

Beneath the the moon lit stream

And if the great whites get to rough

Pretend they're just a dream.

Thank you for comment. I really enjoy rhyming my poems, I feel the art of such has been a little lost in recent times or deemed as unnecessary in contemporary poetry and or limits the poet, but I find it adds an extra dimension, especially to my own writings. If you can write great poetry without rhyme and keep the rhythm that's good, but if you can do both, without limiting oneself, that's great.

I like your style. You are really good with making words flow into a rhythm.

Boy, that Remington was a fish to be reckoned with. Very clever and lots of fun, I bet this ignited your childrens imaginations. My votes to you sarcasticool.
