Tigerfish - Poem by Ima Ryma

Play Poem Video

Africa has no tiger cat,
But boasts having the tigerfish.
Oh my, what razor sharp teeth that
I have to use in yearning wish
To leap from lake into the air
And grab a bird that's flying by.
Quite a surprised bird that I'm there.
What's a fish doing in the sky?
For me to do so takes great skill.
First I must spot, then get up speed,
Compensate angles, then I will
Defy norm nature - yes indeed.

A barn swallow comes into view.
I leap and swallow - yes I do.
