Fish Wish

I watched all the Jacques Costeau episodes as a kid. Obviously I learned nothing from his crew’s underwater photography techniques. What I did was reach out of the kayak, stick the waterproof camera in the water, and snap photos while fish swam by. I snapped a lot of nothing, and then this little fish happened by at the right moment. A not-so-large large mouthed bass.

Failing at my Calypso crew audition, now I seem afflicted with Joyce Kilmer aspirations:

Long Lake, little fish

Long Lake,  little wish

Wants to see the internet

Not  a cute pet

Has to stay wet

Has to stay put

Has to stay free

Bet she’ll  greet a fishing net

Before she meets that internet

Poor little fish

Poor little she
