In the mostly underwater world of fishes it’s dog eat dog
rather than bury their dead they eat them
rather than care for their young they
eat them given the opportunity
rather like Spartans of
antiquity it seems
and yet most
fishes prefer
to live in
schools
and
like people
change colors
to express their moods
but where they differ is that they
will grow forever given enough room
would I rather be one…perhaps if I could
live in the ocean far from the view of mankind
perhaps a flying fish so I could escape the predators
by going airborne long enough to get away; I have a few moves
you’ve never seen up on the stage my village queen long before you
were sixteen and cannibalism was outlawed between clans of Papuans
and I could read the sacred Runes and sing the ancient tunes of mariners
