"Run Like Hell" -- Pink Floyd

How it Goes

My wife complains our raft is leaking
and she has ice water up her butt.

“Small price to hook a steelhead,” I say.
Next, my felt hat floats by

then our cooler, and I turn to see
my old Fenwick broke and stuck in sand

like antennas of old TVs
or giant underground bugs.

“Our wedding vows were for ‘Better
or worse, for summer and winter

steelhead, spring and fall chinook,
and the trouts’”  I offer

but red in her blue eyes says I’d better run.
