Poem Commentary

My ecologies to every ethnic group or fishing athletes who might take offence at this humorous abrasion.

Here Fishy

A Vegge Day
I watch the screen
and drink coffee;
**************

A fishing show;
Men of Bass
how wonderful

Talk is small
water's wet
There she goes!

Jumpy jump;
'smiles a laugh
gets a net

Thumbs it's mouth
twists it back
I'm upset

Laughing still
'thinks it's great
what an ass

Taunts his friend
gets his lure
throws it back

(It's a bass)

Muskelunge
both agree
is the goal

Cut to break...
"kill your dear
with a bow!"

Up a tree
in a chair
branch on head

Perfect shot
through the heart
make him dead

Flash  a smirk
 laundry's done
click it off

Mind runs on
picture him
in a ring

Raging bull
Mexico
here's the thing

Cheering crowd
stands his ground
eye to eye

Just one chance
makes a wish
wings to fly.

I get surprised myself most of the time since I let my fingers do the thinking.

I got here once before, then got distracted by BessFrom Kenton's wit and smile. You deserved better than my ADD shift to her sight w/o a comment here. Wonderfully brief and ultimately a satisfying piece of writing.

Good stuff. (The scary thing is those fishing shows actually have a credit for "writer").

YOU MEAN IT'S ALL PHONY? Like wrestling? They don't act like that in real life then. I respect them more now, since I'm a fledgling at that now. Thanx Bess

An addendum to your comment Bess; I was talking to the painter while at my landscaping job up north. He told he that one day a famous Candian fisher-show guy came up to his neck of the woods to film an episode for TV. He told me how the prop men would dip into a fresh barrel of pickerel from the oil drum and stick um on the lines. They brought this up with them. Could anyone maintain the vicarious thrill of catching a fish if that were to be public knowledge? It's a head shaker.

When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.

John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) Thirty-fifth President of the USA
