I was out in a boat with Grandad Blake

Late last Sunday at the lake.

He took me out to grant my wish

And show me how to catch a fish.

It was a chance to ask about

Bass and perch and speckled trout

And if we caught one, could we cook it

If we were smart enough to hook it?

And I used all kinds of fishing terms

Like “rods” and “reels” and “lures” and “worms”.

He said if I wanted to get my wish,

That I should just shut up and fish.

He was grinning when he said it

But it didn”t take me long to get it.
