A Fishy Tale - Poem by Orlando Belo

A Japanese gentleman in Tokyo
kept koi carp in an outdoor pond.
They all had beautiful colourings,
and they grew to be incredibly long.

At sunrise one Monday morning,
he noticed something quite odd.
Two of the fish appeared to be different,
and were kissing by a leafy pod.

At first, he couldn’t believe what he was seeing,
but both had a human face.
They were blowing bubbles as they were talking,
and what they said was out of place.

They spoke of their dreams and aspirations,
and a new life in a larger pond.
The very next day the land around the pond became flooded,
as though someone had waved a magic wand.
