I see it coming out from behind the fern;
And ready myself to take my turn.
I issue my next command;
As I take a flying rod in hand.
On my side is the element of surprise;
So I throw the ball to catch my prize.
Wiggles and wobbles as a monster aught;
Then I hear the ding and know it’s caught.
Whereas once is was a dangerous threat;
I shall now make it into an endearing pet.
By my side I will watch it evolve and grow;
Oh the adventures on which we’ll go!
