A Dignified Fish - A Poem
A Dignified Fish
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
