Their long time promoter’s new ballad
warns fish to stay clear
of fisherman’s pier,
or end up in somebody’s salad!

Cousin Bell

Cousin Bell moved into a maisonette,
Was promptly told she could not have a pet
Not a cat or dog
Not a fish or frog
What about a gorilla she just met?

Something Fishy

The Japanese love puffer fish
Although it is a toxic  dish
Despite their endeavour
Our Jan tells us, "NEVER!"
A fish that farts is not her wish

The Catch of the Year

The bigger the hole, the bigger the fish,
The better the hope, the better the wish,
That's not a fish, that's a whale,
Much too big a fish to scale,
But one thing for sure, get a bigger dish.

Shark Tale

shark tale

I once enjoyed a movie on a shark.
His bite much bigger than a dogs bark.
In the ocean JAWS scared more than fish.
A bite so deep no one could stitch.
With teeth so sharp, always leaving a mark..

The Mermaids Ball .

The  mermaids  ball  music  still  lingers

Swordfish  Fred  and his shoal  of  sweet singers

Had  a  whale  of  a  time

On  the octopus  slime

Caressed  by  their  salty  fish-fingers

I wake up and shower,
look at myself in the mirror,
And say "What the? Where did the time go?"

all the reptiles gathered round

when elmer the frog hopped to town

never was history

croaked with such boastful glee

till from his pad he fell and drowned.

Fish Tail

A fat bluefin tuna down deep
Was fished out one night when asleep
He was looking quite pale
Had escaped a big whale
To be Sushi for one Meryl Streep

Brody and Quint

This old sea-rig is swamped and don't float
I TOLD you we'd need a bigger boat!
Now you are HIS prize
Sure ain't no surprise
That you're fish-food, you hard-headed goat!

There was a hungry saddle-billed stork,
     That went for a wading walk,
        With his long stout bill
         He caught fish at will,
   It sure made the other birds gawk.

A Fishy Comparison

I can’t understand the ambition
Of people who love to go fishin’.
   Outsmarting your dinner
   Might say you’re a winner,
But what when you fail in that mission?

Mom adores when I do the dishes
If I don't, I'll swim with the fishes
Then my mama will win
She'll never cook again
She'll eat sushi that is delicious

Deadliest Catch

Grandpa was a jolly old winker.
And I was a nine year old stinker.
He was a fish getter
But I did him one better...
I caught Grandpa..hook, line, and sinker!

Plastic Tides

There's an ocean of plastic waste
Which Trump claims just adds to the taste
Marine life is best
When put to the test
Besides who can tell in fish paste?

Felipe the Fish

I once heard of a young fish named, Felipe
Who floated up to consider a leap
His friends did shout
For him to jump out
But he was afraid the air was too deep

Plenty More Fish

This Valentine's Day I shall send
To my boyfriend so not to offend.
Even though I am fond,
If he does not respond,
No worriesHe's got a best friend.

The Wrong Bait

If I were to go fishing all day,
would you get mad and send me away,
'cause while the fish were biting
my ex was out man-sighting...
I ended up with no place to stay.

My Favourite Dish

Currently my favourite dish
is not mutton,chicken or fish
a soup of poetry
it's delicious, cost free
and I'm tasting  it with great relish.

Extreme Idiot

Once there was a woman called Curry Mean “the Queen”
Her persuasive dialog “you shut upI mean what I mean”
“It’s really mean to find the mean
 of the extremes queen and Dean”
bloody “extreme idiot” is no fair word to accuse Curry Mean!

////”Curry Mean” is Sea fish to cook//////
