Fish PoemEating Fish


    I once was told that people's traits

    Came from what's on their dinner plates,

    So that what you ate was what you'd be.

    I hoped that this applied to me.

    To be strong and smart was my biggest wish

    So I started eating a lot of fish.

    I tried to eat mussels every day

    But I still got pushed around at play.

    I then tried to improve my thinking tools

    By eating fish that spent time in schools.

    But no matter how many I ingested

    My grades were the same when I was tested.

    So I got no A's and I didn't get strong

    And didn't know why my plans went wrong.

    Maybe if I eat more desserts and fancy cooking

    I'll grow up rich and better looking.
