Puffer Fish Mike

Poem by Brook Renwick

The thirsty pufferfish,
named big Mike,
had a never-ending thirst.
He drank all of the
water in the ocean.
Then he laid on the hot dry
sand and fell asleep.
When he slept the water
seeped out of his mouth and
onto the sunbaked dry
sand and evaporated up
into the sky and formed clouds.
It rained for one year
and nine months.
After all of that rain,
the oceans had water again.
To this day, old mummy fish
and daddy fish
tell the story of big Mike,
the pufferfish and his thirst
that nearly killed
everyone in the ocean.
