I am a little goldfish
and I've had enough of lies
I float behind my glass wall home
invaded by your eyes.
I've heard the rumors go around
that say
I have 'NO brain'
and I've finally had ENOUGH of it
so have asked Kay

Telepathy was what I used to send this poem to her
her empathy with me you see
is likely NOT to err.

The facts about US goldfish
are in fact as PLAIN as stew
it's simply...
'we're NOT stupid...we just HIDE our high I.Q.
The tittle tales? (their lies are whales)
they say OUR 'mem'ries short'
WELL really!!!
is it US the hooks catch
when the fish get caught?
We're smart enough to be a pet
and keep our watch on you
and we NEVER BLUDGE to close our eyes
EVEN if you ask us to.

We blow you big OH kisses
(even when you've turned your head)
and EVEN when you're making love
we don't change our gold to red.
We keep out of hot water so we are ALWAYS 'cool!'
and we share our gold
with young or old
yet you still scold WE.... are 'fool!"
The scientists have done it...
they misconstrue d the facts,
they said 'WE'D eat OUR selves to death'
....that we 'FORGET we JUST had snacks.'

just 'cause we COULD peck all day
(IF some moron GIVES us food)
it doesn't PROVE that we are dumb
IT just proves that we're NOT rude.
When someone gives a gift to you
it's POLITE that you accept,
yes,we'd eat until we died
but it's rude if we reject?
Yet still you human experts think
Us goldfish
stop all this fact...
it's YOU.... WHO'S DUMB!!

Wow! Hi Kay.. I read this 3 times.. and found it speaking to me on a different level each time.. sigh.. perhaps I'm a bit 'hyper-sensitive' at the moment.. (smile).. but this is utterly charming and clever at its most straightforward.. it is borderline brilliant as a commentary.. I applaud your ability to write such a cool piece! This is art for the thinking person.. wonderful! katy xox.
