Attack alas alack of snack

Fishy and Medusa like
moves subtle in piscean flight

Slower than darting eyes
small mammals increase your size

Shady (steak out) waiting
cold smooth incalculable expectant satiating

For Carolyn Devonshire's attack contest!!

    Oh, I think I might understand this now, Joe? About a person under the sign of Pisces?? Does no sound like a kind soul.:( He had certainly feasted on the guts of others. Oh well, bad him! Best wishes, Love, Mikki

    Almost anything increases size so I'm verry careful. Enjoyed your fun verse that pokes fun at the tummy.

    Ah well i failed to catch a fish, with the little shiela dish, but thems the breaks old mate of mates, great verse here my thought dictates, Too much of the yellow belly, codfish might be great, on telly? My Gramps tried to run down a scab shearer, in Bourke, but Grannie Tuppy saved his life by reefing on the wheel...(a future verse?) on ya Joe Don
