 7 No fish up in trees

 

It was a dilemma,

what should he do?

Break the line?

 

No, that would result,

in the loss of a favorite fly,

and he only had one,

of that style with him today.

 

It was a dilemma,

what should he do?

Turn around?

 

No, that might result,

in the loss of his footing,

and a cold bath,

in the stream today.

 

It was a dilemma,

what should he do?

cut the line?

 

No – – – even though he could,

tie a new fly on now,

and retrieve the favorite one later,

but not while in the stream.

 

It was a dilemma,

what should he do,

what should he do?

 

So he made a decision,

to slowly turn around,

step up on that big rock,

retrieve his favorite fly,

from the stubborn oak,

and then return to his spot.

 

Whereupon he slowly turned,

stepped up on the big rock,

misjudged the angle,

due to his bifocals,

slipped off the rock,

took a cold bath,

in the stream,

broke his line,

and could not,

for the life of him,

locate his favorite fly.

 

His dilemma was over.
