Captains Pet - Poem by Daniel Bernard Kelleher

the Captain said I had to move
To make more room for the crew
He moved me to the upper deck
Watch by gulls with long necks
The Captain bought me I was small
Now much bigger no use at all
My colours were what attracted him
Red Brown multi coloured skin
A pinch of food that's all it takes
To keep me happy through out the day
Spend my days going round and round
Colour pebbles scattered round
Sunken galleon upon them stand
A fish a friend to have at hand
