Haddock to Hake

I ponder on this till I ache: a haddock who says he's a hake - I guess it's his right to think that despite so many believe he's a fake... Written 25th April for Constance's ache contest

Ah, so many people pretend to be things they are not. Had to take pity on the haddock. If you see him, tell him he's welcome on my dinner table anytime. I've never even tasted hake. Had to look it up. Congrats on your win! Hugs, carolyn

This is just too cute Jake. It got a chuckle out of me and I needed that. Still recovering from a broken hip. Hope it's a winner. God Bless, JB

Oh so cute Jack - really fun, if he really insists that he is a hake, we will join the many and also think he's a fake! Well penned Jack, I enjoyed this limerick a lot! Hugs and blessings, Jennifer,

I wonder who that Hake is? Is this a metaphoric work? Enjoyed reading this one which is a good contender for the contest. Way to go. Thanks for all the visits. Sara
