Some say I’m cool
Others think I’m nuts
Though not at all lazy
Thank-you very much
Cause I’m swimming in the ocean
Getting deeper all the time
At the end of each day resurfacing
With a slightly larger catch

cool and nuts? Well, what's the difference? Its the level of the being of the seer which determines if its cool or nuts. hahaha By the way, whats common is normal in this common belief system. I am NUTS, no doubt from their point of view and This makes me feel good. hahaha What matters is the catch and 'At the end of each day resurfacing With a slightly larger catch' you must feel happy and good.

Very cool poem, as you know I'm partial to poems related to fish or fishing. Im glad all your efforts are paying off...when you get the biggest catch of all you can laugh wildly and show them just who is nuts...hahaha

This piece speaks to me of digging deeper into life and getting more from it for your efforts, all wrapped up in a catchy, fun little poem.

To steal a line from the movie Jaws, 'We're gonna need a bigger boat' say's it all. Short and sweet, Chris. Pe4ce...

no, never say lazy! now it's summer, take time to relax and maybe go fishing? but don't worry about catches, sometimes too much effort will scare the fish away. He he.

A great philosophy Chris. I wonder whether your catch is a subject of de-bait...hehe...sorry, couldn't help it ;P Nice one Chris!

This reminds me of a gluttonous dolphin. :-) Still can never read just one and this one made me smile from ear to ear.
