To make another laugh
is simply to succeed

in reeling in the bass
and not the dirty weed.

And as they give the fish
to the caster of the line

Their satisfying dish
is the rhythm of the rhyme.

They thrive upon the bait
on the ending of the hook,

each of which they ate
in the manner that they took.

Though everyone has dined
from the fisherman today

he loads another line
and flicks it on its way.
