Oh to be a fish

I'm clinging to a rock, Being battered by the waves. At the mercy of the sea, Living long and tedious days. No escape for me, Life's a constant tussle Relentlessly being pounded, It's not easy being a mussel. Stuck here on this rock Filtering away all day. Nothing to eat but plankton, I wish I could swim away. Oh, to be a fish And cruise the open sea, I may be shackled to my rock, But I dream of being free.

This really amused me Gary ...I wonder if a fish dreams of being a mussel attached to a rock and not at the mercy of predators lol:-) hugs Jan xx
