I know it’s a new moon tonight
and the fish’ll be biting
up at Lucky Peak
below Arrowrock Dam.

And I also know, the Buddha said
to show compassion
for every sentient being
and mostly I try pretty hard
to do that.

But the way I figure it is,
if those damn fish
are that damn dumb
to be tricked into biting
on what I’m throwing at ‘em,
well, maybe it’s not all my fault
if they get caught.

And all the while, I can’t help
but wonder
who’s fishing for me.
Who or what’s out there
somewhere, fishing for me?
