I Remember When

I remeber when I was a little squirt

My dad would make me go fishing with him

And I hated it

Such a bore

But, looking back, I laugh

He would get a few beers in him, and haul ass in the little boat

I guess trying to scare the shit out of me

It was actually the best part

I remember imagining the drowned town below

A man made flooded city

'Catfish as big as Volkswagons'; sure

'Don't get to close to water or the beast will grab you'; funny

I remember seeing turtles chilling on rocks in the sun

I swear, they looked they were staring back, thinking 'What assholes'

It's good to remember sometimes

At the time, it was a total drag

But now the memories change somewhat

Maybe we can do it again, before we're memories ourselves
