Far From the Workaday World

A marlin was mounted upon the vast wall

Just past the foyer in the Great Hall

Caught on a long sail in the Blue Caribe

Far from the workaday world

A 30 inch bass had given a fine fight

Yet now to the cook's great delight

It would serve over twenty seated to dine

Far from the workaday world

A koi was brought from an Asian pond

And of this fish too, the master was fond

It swims happily in the Mansion's moat

Far from the workaday world

Swim Little Fish

Swim little fish across the lake

How lovely a path you take

Through the algae green and dark

That sway in the water in graceful arc

Denizens of the Deep

Deep under the blue expanse

The mystery fish abide

In the sunless depths they dance

From ugly predators they hide

Not your standard dinner fare

These denizens of the abyss

Few men have voyaged there

Removed from sun's sweet kiss

Sightless as they feel for prey

These swimmers in the dark

Who'll never see the light of day

Nor hear the warbling lark

Sleek and Plump

Sleek and plump they gather round

A feeding frenzy with muted sound

From behind the scalloped coral

Fish gather giving no grace oral

A large detritus tossed overboard

Is providing this smorgasbord
