'The Roosterfish' by Barbara Bliss



ONE WINDY NIGHT THE COCKEREL TOOK FLIGHT,

FOLK WENT IN SEARCH OF THE COCKEREL’S NEW PERCH,

THEY HUNTED AROUND BUT HE’S NOT ON THE GROUND,

HE’S HIGH UP ABOVE ON A LEDGE OF THE CHURCH.

NOT ONLY DID HE GET BLOWN THROUGH THE AIR,

THERE WAS ALSO A FISH – A CURIOUS PAIR,

WHAT IS THE CONNECTION?  WE PONDER IN THOUGHT,

PERHAPS BY THE COCKEREL THE FISH HAD BEEN CAUGHT!

A COCKEREL’S A ROOSTER AS EVERYONE KNOWS,

SO THE ANSWER IS UNDER EVERYONES NOSE,

IN THE SEA OFF PERU,

LIVES A CURIOUS FISH,

BUT WOULD YOU BELIEVE ME IF I TELL YOU THIS,

TO EXPLAIN THIS DISASTER,

‘ROOSTERFISH’ IS THE ANSWER.
