    Koi Poems / Poor Hariwake

    Poor Hariwake,
    Lying on the floor.
    My hopes of you being a champion
    Gone, forever more.
    Fifteen pounds, for a four inch fish
    I must be ruddy mad.
    A Koi, with great potential
    The best I ever had.
    I brough you in for the winter,
    To grow you on, in style.
    Okay, I left the lid up
    But I was only gone a while.
    Now look at you, cat's supper,
    Dusty, battered and dead,
    Small consolation I suppose
    To know the cat's been fed.
    But wait!
    Did I see your gill move
    Yes! I thought I did.
    In you go,
    He's moving slow,
    Now close the flipping lid.
    Sorry Cat, you'll have to wait,
    The Champ is doing fine.
    Where's that Cheshire grin of yours,
    Better Luck Next Time

    Thought it looked familiar.

    While I believe the web is still Informations super highway, proprieties should be observed. A simple way of sharing such information is to post a link to it. That way we can all share it and the owners rights aren't infringed.

    You may be hungry
    and underfed
    But touch my koi
    and you'll soon be dead.
