A Dignified Fish - A Poem

Updated on September 1, 2016

A Dignified Fish

Temptation

Fish in the ocean a swimmin'

Swimmin' a current strong

Along come the devil a fishin'

Fishin' and hummin' a song

With bait so sweet and tempting

And a cunning zestful eye

He spots a luscious silver fin

Of a dignified fish near by

He baited his hook, still hummin'

Threw out his line with a spin

For you my sweet, a bauble

Bite it and I'll pull you in

But the fish jumped up with a pouty mouth

And a stunning show of pride

Swam the currents with exquisite grace

And flaunted herself on the tide

The fisherman drooled, sweet baby! You're mine

I love you! Hook line and fin

So she nibbled and nibbled and finally bit

And the devil reeled her in

      This is a classic story of temptation. It's that nibbling that does him in. Great job!

      I did not find this funny. It is sad. Feeble is always gulped by powerful. This is also the case with humans.

      Audrey, my mind is always spinning. You are right, I could write a cute little song, and a book. Both take time and money...I have neither. Lol. Thanks for the comment. Have a wonderful night.

      Hi Vin. Yes, it's sad when we are lured into a worldly situation. It's a lesson we must learn. Thanks for your input.

      Well done, Ann. This poem seems like it could become a regular at teen programs. Funny but meaningful! We can do some more poems of this caliber.
