A True Fisherman
A true fisherman knows when and where
the fish are biting
He rises up early in the morning,
plying the water for that elusive catch,
waiting in the stillness for a nibble
A slight twitch in the line,
expertly he reels it in—
A good fisherman knows a keeper
when he sees one, he knows when to toss
one back, and when to
head for home.
