It seems that this fish likes to smoke
a habit that makes his gills choke
I hate to pick nit
but how's it stay lit?
His brand must be one that won't soak

Trigger and Baron Barracuda on the 60s children's TV show,
Diver Dan.
The title "Lucky Pike" was Backthrow's, and I
embellished it. Here are Backthrow's alternate titles for this
limerick:
Puffer Fish, Harbor Lights, Smoke on the Water,
A Sick Guppy, Low Char, (or Low Gar), Hali-butts, and
Fishing Hack-le.

When we visited Chicago relatives (I grew up in Detroit), my brothers and I would be mesmerized by the TV shows. Not that they were better, but they were all different from ours.

But Diver Dan was trippy beyond belief. The underwater smoking was only part of it--I kept wanting to see Dan's face, and it bugged/frightened me.

I really love Limerwrecks, BTW.

Thanks, James. That means a lot coming from such a talented writer. You should post a link here to your baseball poetry site.
