The line

Pilbeam won’t be happy,
with the way things have worked out.
He was hoping for a grandson,
and ends up with a trout.

I knew that girl was trouble
the first time I saw her.
Who’d want a bugeyed flounder
as your one and only daughter?

A quillback riffle dace, perhaps,
or a North Atlantic sprat,
but not a bugeyed flounder
— I draw the line at that.
