An eel's appeal
Lies in a meal
Where it tends to congeal and smell.
An eel's milieu
Lies in a stew
Instead of a lake or a well.

An eel's appeal
Is not how it feels
When tied down the leg of a trouser.
For tied to the side,
Before it has died,
It proves to be quite the carouser.

A poacher's approaches
When hunger encroaches
Revolve around fishing and hunting.
A poacher's approach
To poaching the poach
Is simmering gently in something.

A poacher's reproach
To Withnail's approach
Is that the eel's appeal is wrong.
A poacher's approach
To an eel's appeal
Is to come wake you up with a live one.
