Rajesh Thankappan (Guwahati)
The Fish And The Hook
A fish said to the hook,
You crooked old crook
You tempt us with food
And then haul us up to be cooked.
The hook to this replied,
Sorry, I am just a simple device!
But let me say with no malice
You taste good when fried!
The fish on hearing this said,
You better retire to bed
For I shall never pick up your bait
Though you may for me forever wait!
