A Fishy Tale

One night an octopus said, Those whelks should be in bed. Said the herring to the plaice, Would you please say grace. "I say" said a passing whale, "Is that kipper for sale." There is somethingvery odd, Repied a bewildered cod. "Excuse me" asked the shark, "Did you hear that dogfish bark". The haddock with a smile serene, Said the mermaid is our queen. May I join you said the seal, To the mackerel with some appeal. Of course the snapper replied, Yes,yes the mullet cried.
