Salmon Ella - Poem by rachael richmond
salmon ella was a beauty
with fins so fine and graceful,
a swishy tail to die for
and her scales were really tasteful.
ray spotted her at sunrise
among the weeds and coral.
he thought she looked a princess
and who, with this, could quarrel?
but salmon ella scorned him,
'you're flat, such an odd piece.'
and there was ray thinking
he looked great in his codpiece!
but time went by and things got hot
and she slowly grew to love him.
he placed her on a pedestal
and put this queen above him.
they often went to his plaice
for some nocturnal fishing.
no longer was he floundering,
for true love, no more wishing.
ray asked our salmon ella
to be his life long fishwife.
the reverend mr sturgeon performed
the joining of the fish lifes.
then off they swam together
fin in fin, their happiness glutted.
love is blind, they didn't see
the nets. and now they're gutted.
