The smallest fish will grow too great,
If God allows him such a fate ;
But when he’s caught, to let him go
I think myself would folly show,
For he don’t bite again so soon, we know.
A fisher on the river’s bank, we hear,
Hooked out a carpling of the smallest fry :
“ Still that makes one,” the man did cry,
“ And the beginning of my merry cheer :
Come, let us bag thee, little rogue. ”
The carpling pleaded in his brogue :
“ Alas ! what can you make of me ?
Not half a mouthful shall I be !
Let me the size of carp attain,
And then you’ll hook me up again ;
Some rich contractor you'll entice
To buy me at a handsome price,
Whereas in my poor wretched state,
A hundred scarce will fill a plate :
And such a plate ! not worthy to be tried.”
“ Well, be it so,” the fisherman replied ;
“ Friend fish, you finely preach away ;
But you must go to pot, whate'er you say,
For certainly to-night you shall be fried.
One fish in hand's worth two we have not got ;
The one is certain, and the other's not.
