Fish - Poem by Rosmin Elsa Mohan
They swarm, they swim, they nestle and play
They laugh, they giggle and merrily sway
Filled with life; do they fill with life
the vast expanse of an ocean bay?
Some are slimy and fall so grey
To the hiding nets of human prey
In savour and salt, at the ease of a knife
Killing a hungry stomach away
Grilled and smoked
Skinned and choked
To fill plates and pockets alike
To live like a queen, and die deprived
of the goodness of water and life.
Some are mighty to tear apart
Man and the might, he bears at heart
In a pool of blood that doth float away
The fish does now await and lay
Alluring each moment in each new day
We are like the fish
At times to fall prey, at times to kill
In the ocean of life do we swarm and fill
At times we win, at times to fall
Midst tides those come; big and small
We are ready to die and kill insane
For selfish needs and fallen grains
Fishes in us fish the fishes out there
The ocean does in silence adhere.
Poet's Notes about The Poem
