See the spiny squawfish
slither sideways in the stream!
Who says the sullen squawfish
cannot grace a fine tureen?
Just chop his head and tail off
and take his innards out.
You’ll have a tasty morsel
that’s half the price of trout.
If your local fishy monger
cannot dish your favourite fish,
just tell him you’ll go elsewhere
to supply your fishy wish.
