Around the Bay


Bats over black water
the moon casts an eerie glow
lakeflies hum their song


Coming in from fishing
better to say nothing ‘bitin’
than admit being skunked.


When the lights went out
the last piece of cake was gone
and the boy missing.


Easy to be a stone
harder to ba a river
held in place by rocks.


Skunked, the ol’ man says
but tomorrow’s another day
he says and we nod.


Fishinh in the bay
Lake Winnebago rollers
reach the frothy shore.
