The Cullman Times
West Point High School
I cast my reel in the deep dark water
To catch the fish that I sought after.
They come to the top to take a breath
And I cast my reel while I sweat.
The fish takes the bait
And I can’t wait
To see what I have caught.
Only to my surprise,
It wasn’t what I thought.
A stick I had
And it made me mad,
For I got my hopes up for nothing.
But at least when I had cast my reel
I actually brought up something.
