Fish Food

Fish Food

I fed my fish a spider

I thought it might be fun

It sped across the water

And made me turn and run

It made me feel so frightened

I ran and screamed some more

So now I am enlightened

I will do this no more

The moral of this ditty

Is try to remain good

Always show humanity

When feeding fish their food



  1. poignant yet fun to read… i love this great piece!

  7. We could have sliced spider open, choosing its most delicate parts, and fried it with onion and fresh veggies. Nah – I’ll bet that spider was probably a delicious change from stinky fish flakes:) Loved it peneolopephoebe! Thank you kindly for vising my site. -J.

      • I just had to come back and thank you so much for highlighting my blog on Onestop. It was most gracious of you! You commented on a recent post saying, “You certainly make me think”. I cannot thank you enough for such a warm comment. It is that very comment that keeps me reading the work of others and in doing so – inspires me to write. I do not have the time now (that school has begun) to spend online reading as I did so much of back in August, but I look forward to reading more of your blog, and the many others featured on Onestop. Thanks again –

        Daniel Jay.
