100 Worder A Fishy tale

100 Worder A Fishy tale

Janet Bunce

Fishy Green Ale (with acknowledgement to Harry Potter)

I know I haven’t always been a fish but it seems daft that I should reason that.
            Every day I swim in shoals trying to catch minnows or trying to hide from predators.
            My companions seem oblivious to the perils but not me.
            How many times have I seen them chasing false bait or eaten in one large mouth?
            When I see lines it creates a memory for me.
            I remember waders, casting in, lager in hand watching for a bite.
            Oh how the tide turns.
            If only they (unlike me) believed in karma.
            What comes around, goes around (sometimes!)
