What's For Supper?

by BlueMarble

Fishing in the lake near my campsite,
Watching my line in the afternoon light,
Thinking about my dinner tonight,
Walleye or bass, which one will bite? 

I was dreaming of bass, seasoned just right,
When suddenly I felt my line go tight.
The tug that it gave sat me upright,
Whatever it was it was giving a fight. 

I struggled and fought till to my delight,
I finally managed to win the fight.
I brought it in but when it came to sight,
Sadly I knew something wasn't right.

 Tears filled my eyes as I viewed my plight -
A clump of weeds for supper tonight.
