A Comatose Herring


Ahem

A beautiful fish, how sad,
That he became comatose -
A comatose herring alas
Comatose alas.
He fell into his coma,
Fell into it,
Yesterday as he got caught
By a fishing rod.
But there is hope
For better days,
Soon, I hope,
It's possible.

Part 2

O herring
In a coma,
I have a proposition to make:
I'll get you out of that coma.
Soon there'll be happy days,
Tomorrow,
When I get you out of that coma,
That blights you so.
Alas, the coma
Is not to be,
As my friend - Peter - will
Help me.
Together we'll get you out
Of that coma
Which blights you so, alas,
We shall help you.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
