Remington Fish ('a very fishy poem')
( I wrote this poem a while back for my five children as a bit of good fun.)
Have you heard of Remington Fish?
He's a legend on these lakes
No fisherman could catch him
He'd never take the bait
What a cunning fish this Remington
He would swim for all to look
And dance his way through waters deep
Eating meat right off your hook
Now many brave and bold a man
Would scheme to catch this trout
But he would baffle and bewield them
While swimming all about
Oh Remington you clever fish
Why don't you take a bow
The way you keep eluding nets
No other fish knows how!
So Remington, you lovely fish
Why don't you come for tea?
I've filled a pot of water
Pretend your in the sea
I must decline your offer sir, was Remington's reply
I'm dining with the sharks tonight
To teach them how to spy
But you could dine with us instead
Beneath the the moon lit stream
And if the great whites get to rough
Pretend they're just a dream.
