Magnet Fishing

Magnet fishing a new activity
Lift something to sell in the car boot sales
From the many waterways of North Wales;
Cable once used for electricity,
Old tools or coins or anything pretty,
Discarded cans of Wrexham Lager Ales,
Those twisted metal hooks for lifting bales
And every kind of curiosity.

But a young lady from Bala went wrong
Causing the army a dangerous task,
When hauling out an unexploded bomb
She thought looked like an attractive hip flask;
So you magnet anglers a warning take
And mind what you fish out of river or lake!
