Threw my rock

Threw My Rock

So I threw my rock out into the middle of a big lake yesterday.
I threw my rock out as far as I could throw.
And I threw it.

It didn’t really make a splash, well not one of much notice
I didn’t think it would, but I threw it anyway
Maybe I was hoping it would hit one of the boats or folks playing in the lake
or maybe it would smack a big fish who would come dancing up
looking around to find what hit him
but no. not much notice. not much of anything.
But I threw it.

There’s a strange thing about throwing rocks into water
they always make a ripple.
‘cept if you throw your rock into a busy lake
those ripples might get swallowed up by all the larger ones
created from all the activity going on.
But I threw it
because if I didn’t throw it that rock was only going to sit in my hand
or I guess I could have just dropped it on the shore and walked away.

So I threw my rock out into the middle of a big lake yesterday.
I threw my rock out as far as I could throw.
And I threw it.
