Courageous Fishing – Trifextra: Week Eighty-Eight

Written for Trifextra. A limerick about fishing. Begins after the comic.

Courageous Fishing

Fishing champ Jake hooked a monster in the moor.
The shambling thing stumbled, gave a horrible roar.
But then Jake never shook.
He baited another hook.
Caught two more bass before the beast got to shore.

On the weekends, Trifecta’s challenges are extras, thus “Trifextra.” Limited to 33 words only. Perfect for limericks. This week, we got an image prompt. Here’s the original prompt.

About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.
