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.
