A Mighty Catch

I am a mighty catch


With shining eyes and fancies fair


I put them on with hidden guile


My perfect scales a-glimmering


As I swim round my little pond


The other creatures pass me by


And then I spy the hook


 


The hook gleams in the murky light


Unseen by any in the pond


A trap not set for me at all


And yet I dare investigate


My lips are pierced, my freedom gone


A mighty catch is caught


 


But willingly I fly away


My curiosity aflame


I gaze into my captor's eyes


He takes the hook out of my mouth


And holds me in his calloused hands


To stare at what he's caught


 


I wait for him to take me home


To die or to become his pet


My captor, proud of what he's done


Now watches me with bored regret


He throws me back from whence I came


A mighty catch released
