a fish that was always thrown back

Mike The Minnow

by londis carpenter

copyright 2006


Mike was a minnow.
He lived in a brook,
Where he watched larger fishes
Get caught on a hook.
But whenever Mike bit
On the bait for a snack,
Because he was small,
They would throw him right back.
This made Mike sad.
He had not yet been taught
What happens to fishes
Who get themselves caught.
Mike soon learned in fish school,
With other small fish,
That if he got hooked
He'd wind up on a dish.
So now that Mike's older,
To big to throw back,
He no longer nibbles
On bait for a snack.

Very easy to imagine Aesop reading this delightful poem parable and smiling at how very good and true and wise it is:-) Thank you.

I picture this as a great 'learn from your experience' allegory for a children's book. Do you know a good illustrator?

Wise message through the lines of "Mike The Minnow".

I have enjoyed the reading of "Mike The Minnow", and have learned
a soul building lesson.

You are a Sublime Poet always complying with Poetry's tasks.

May the Mother-Poet keep smiling to You.
