A little girl, aged three or four,
Spots a fish tank in a book store.
She places her hands upon the glass,
And watches the fish swimming past.
She considers the fish a real attraction,
But, from them, she receives little reaction.
She bangs her palms upon the glass,
But the fish look vacant as they pass.
‘You’re stupid! ’ the girl angrily says,
Before pulling a face and walking away.
Then, to the fish tank, she returns,
And watches the fish glide and turn.
The girl really tries her utmost best,
But the fish still possess little interest.
The world outside, the fish are ignoring:
The girl considers fish are really boring.
The girl then gets extremely frustrated -
She considers fish to be quite overrated.
A raspberry, she then rudely blows –
She soon gives up and off she goes.
