I Wish I were a Fish!


I really fail to understand

Why I evolved to live on land

Evolution’s cruel intentions

 Restrict me to just two dimensions


How on reflection I do wish

I had evolved to be a fish

For I could move both up and down

And never fear to sink and drown


What’s more it surely is a gift

To have the freedom to exist

In seventy percent versus

 Thirty of Earth’s land surface


So too I would never ever

Dread the ever-changing weather

What matter if it’s wind or rain

For my domain remains the same


Oh how happy I would be

To leave the land and join the sea

These are my passionate pretensions

To move around  in three dimensions

    Might not be all that great to be a fish,
    You could end up on someone's dish!
    What a fun and clever poem you wrote.
