Hook to the fish

With its sharp crevices

and metal condensed onto one item.

It's a trap— one function only.

The hook is functionally deceitful.

A senseless fish smells the bate

and usually falls for the deceit

without a doubt in its mind.

It wasn't a prey as he expected.

As he gasps for one last breath

his thoughts are filled with regret.

He wondered who to blame

the hook for being oneself

or himself for being simply too

naive and not being able to perceive

beyond the surface.
