What do you tell someone
who had caught a blue whale
at the end of his line
and then lost it
“There’s bigger fish in the sea?”
Forgetting that a whale ain’t no fish
no there’s not
that was it.
That was your chance at catching the big one
sure, you could cast your line again
and maybe you could even snag a baby beluga whale
your whale has sailed.
Can you make do with a minnow?
