Angler

 

Plenty of patience

to sit, to wait,

now you’ve gone and

hooked your bait.

 

Your line is cast

in water deep,

dangling while

you drift to sleep.

 

You’ll know when you

have had a bite,

the line will tauten

get real tight.

 

And then your catch,

you’ll reel it in,

turning the line

to make it spin.

 

Fish out of water,

drown in the air,

your patience has been

rewarded there.

 

Cast out again,

there’s lots to catch

for you believe

they’ve met their match.

 

Deep beneath

the water’s surface

swims a shark

with greater purpose.

 

The angler spots it,

moves away,

so lives to fish

another day.
