An exciting adventure awaits - a prose poem.
|Through the portentous mist and grey fog,
The adventuresome and portly fisherman has yet another lucky
And inviting bite -
A doomed and overanxious striper has fallen prey
To the mighty and prodigious angler's bait and tackle once again.
The famed and regal sea man of many countless, animated adventures
Has cast out into the vast, bottomless ocean of enormous mystery
And reeled in his latest trophy,
A determined, yet ill-fated striped bass.
Looking ahead, the stouthearted limey eyes further
Edible catches with his dedicated fishing tools,
Amid the ocean's swirling mists
And bounteous waves.
