Bait This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

   I'm all alone

Late at night

The stars are shining

The moon is bright



I knew by looking

It would be a long night

I wouldn't return without a fight



I start up the engine

I'm off like a shot

I knew where I was headed

To my favorite spot



It was now totally silent

My engine was off

The only sound I heard

Was the one from my cough



I sit back and relax

I'm feeling fine

I glance at my watch

And check for the time



My pole and I

Are together at last

I don't hesitate to

Throw out my cast



Then I sit back down

And wait and wait

I check my watch again

It's getting late



Hours have passed

And still no fish

I think to myself

It must be a trick



I want to go home

I can barely wait

So I pull up my line

And realize ...



I forgot my bait !!!
