Hook, Line And Sinker - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

I have always wondered what it means
when someone using oral means
says something so colloquial
that it is understood by all
except us foreigners of course
yes language, it is such a force!

A lady fishing from the bridge
her husband though had climbed a ridge
they were in heated competition
and liked the thought of going fishing.

A tug was felt along her line
at first she felt she should recline
and pull until the fish came out
it probably would be a trout.

It did not work and hubby yelled
about the way his sweetheart held
the fishing pole, she called him 'stinker'
then she fell in, hook, line and sinker.

    Thanks all. Max, the germinal seed ripened in the stratum germinativum (as it should) , it came from a casual (?) comment by Mahnaz in the forum.
