Plenty of Fishes

Plenty of fish
In the sea
Big variety of fishes
Small variety of fishes

Cutle Fish
Octopus
Plenty of fish
In the Sea

This was written in response to this week's Magpie Tales. Visit the Magpie Tales site to participate or visit others who have.

This was also inspired by a sign I saw in Naxos, Greece a few years ago. It made me giggle then. It makes me giggle now.

  4. I could see why you were inspired and snapped a photo of that delightful side -- a really 'Cutle Fishy' poem, enjoyed it -- was a fun inspirational piece.
