A Delicious Fish's Wishes


Fish, fish, what do you wish?

To each his own,
BUT
I wish
for a fish
on a dish
(mmm... delish!)

'Ah, pish! '
says the darned fish.
'I wish to be
in the sea
swimming free
and...
perhaps...
drinking...
so me...
tea? '
(muttered he,
dreamily.)
'But all in all, just me being me.'

But suddenly!
A bee
stung me
on the knee
(ouch! said I. er, me)
Back to earth with Bree!

And I'm left to wonder
If me the fish would berate
Were he not lying postrate
dead
on my plate...

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
