The Fish of Fallacies

Float like a butterfly,

And sting like a bee.

Open the doors-

Kiss me on the cheek, 

And you will soon be free. 


Interrupt a conversation between bears,

And risk your life-

For some pollen.

So supple. 

That is. 


Have you not noticed yet?

The boy is trying to trap you-

Within a jar.

On your own accord-

You won’t get far.



You’ve made it.

The oceanside.

A thousand miles-

From the nearest net. 

No longer hindered-

By your past,

And released from the hiding.


As you gaze upon the waters-

You sight a friend.

One with a ridiculous wish.

One who hopes to sprint upon the land.


Is one ridiculous fish. 


“What a moron”

You think.

He will never be this fast.

As you leave on a dime,

And zip across the sand.
