“A fishing pole is a stick with a hook at one end and a fool on the other.” Samuel Johnson

Beware The Hooks

My friend's father took us fishing one night,
he took time to explain that I should be very
careful with the hook because should my flesh
become hooked the hook could only go one 
way through my finger and that would be
really painful, and I believed him, but
what of other hooks that pass painfully
through us, you know the ones, yes?
Are we equally as careful with them?
