Big Fish

There’s a fish that lives inside my head, The bigger he grows the more he gets fed. And when anglers come to take a look, They dangle their worms on a fishing hook. Or they toss him bits and bites of bread, Which makes him grow and expands my head. And he longs to swim with fish in the sea, But here he remains stuck inside of me. But now he’s grown too big today, And there’s enough to be a filet. Cutting him down makes him easier to swallow, But like a puffer fish they’ll find him hollow. Now where there once floundered a whale, Is left a little minnow to grab by the tail.

a tad lives in a pool of water, squigle is his tail, and from Gods all grace he frows and grows, and has his purpose on earth. Love of all things is the greatest of all things Tony, but its a sad state when you have to use 1 lady that aint so bad as an example of how I was treated by fellow writers, much love and respect for you and yours, Cindy Lu all rights reserved :)~

Does that mean there's room now for a frog and an eel and a llama? ~N
