Human Aquarium

A silo water casket scintillates glow 
Green sea-weed blanket, bright red and yellow.
Pebbles and gravel, in a crystalline show.
Fizzing of bubbles the aquatic-air combo.

A vista of motion, flashes a rainbow. 
A bunch of humans thrown, in the confined gizmo. 
Dull green eyes, swim an ocean pseudo.
The drift of life, it's all real although. 

The wriggle of fins, of the snooty goldfish. 
The ripple of gills, of the elite angelfish. 
The humble jellyfish, and the snail all sluggish.  
The crabs and corals, the intricate gimmicks. 
Each and every home marvels marine mimics.

Our penthouse aquarium of ornamental beauty 
We all are sealed in our filial duty.
Unbreakable, shatterproof, cocktail glass of captivity...
 Mundane activity, glows in endless sanguinity. 
Then one day, motionless fish in sea..
will  be flushed out, quarantined to liberty... 
will swim across free ....the ocean of eternity.
