How To Catch A Fish In The Solent
Aim to reach the hot walls before dawn
to bid the moon farewell and greet the sun,
salute the sailors on their morning run.
Then wave your arms at islanders upon
the St Helen. As soon as she is gone
unpack your bag, your tea and Belgian bun
to keep you sated till your work is done.
This fishing lark is quite a marathon!
Then once you're fed and watered get your rod
and take a gentle stroll up to the pier,
don't worry if you feel a little odd -
the other fishing folk are friendly here.
Explain that even though your technique's flawed
Your cool bag is, in fact, filled up with beer.
