The Fish

I caught a tremendous fish
and held him beside the boat
half out of water, with my hook
fast in a corner of his mouth.

What happened to the boat
Its about the life of a fish, the get away of the fish and the victory of getting away it kind of the life as a person that wears theirs losses as a victory to never forget what it takes to be free. Now at the end he knows that it is the end and that's why he didn't fight this time get away
they did not said what happen to the boat.

What a great poem, but a fish story, so I don't believe it happened. I may have to add her to my favorite poets list.
