FEEDING EELS AT PENN'S LANDING

Folder: 
SILLY PHILLY

It was a warm afternoon

and I was down at Penn’s Landing

walking about aimlessly.

 

I bought a pretzel

and sat by the river

looking over at Camden:

the  Aquarium & Wiggins Park.

 

I walked up the rail

and saw eels in the water.

I decided the pretzel was

a bit on the stale side

 

so I broke off pieces

and threw them into the water.

I watcthed the eels scurry

to get the free meal.

 

I was so amused

that I bought another pretzel

just to feed the eels

and watch them fight each other

over pieces of stale pretzel.


So this is how I pass my time

on a sunny Saturday afternoon.

It doesn’t say much.

 

I just wonder if it puts me

one step above or one step below

the old farts in the park

that sit around feeding pigeons.

Definitely A Step Up

Eel used to be a staple. I wonder if the world fails will pigeon become a stable. Probably and those pretzel stuffed eels too. "old farts" made me smile - slc
