Like a fish outta water, (though at times he's in deep)...
Knowing more than he oughtta, swimming hymns of fish-speak....
Quite alert, from the dirt, through these blurts you'll not sleep...
One swoop-sweep and you'll reap, from this tale of unique.
Flooding brews, nutty stews, flavor fully dispersed...
These infused, worldly views, ranging lengthy to terse.
Budding truths stemmed in hues of a palette diverse..
Cutting loose all fish juice, splashed in rhymes unrehearsed.
^^^^^ Five Fins Up For Finesse in Fishosophy. Encore, por favor, as in, "Let there be more!"
This book is brilliant.
English is my third language- to tackle it- no pun intended fishman- is a commitment. So I sit in my dry place- lowest precipitation in the states outside Death Valley- and study water, bubbles and fish antics.
This does several things for me- here they are:
Break from my day.
Getting smarter learning words. ( thesaurus)
Reward is always a laugh.
... Followed by a space, a time of no- thought.
Then... Much later a head shake! How does he think of that??
Great as a gift too. I bought one for me and one for my cowboy friend to take him from the dusty planes into the cool refreshing pond.
