Hooked At Last—Allegory

An allegorical poem telling how one is cornered.

It is a wait
a long wait
for the bait
down the river.

the hook is sharp
very sharp
to catch the carp
down the river.

The net is large
too large
let from the barge
down the river.

The boy is small
tiny and small
waiting for the call
down the river.

The download (13)carp bites the insect
a wee like insect
then dives down in an intersect
down the river.

It comes up again
again and again
gets hooked at last
goes away from the river.
