Fish feeding

My ickle fish in their ickle pond have such an idyllic time
Then their ickle brains go all-a-whir, “It really is a crime –
He knows that we get so hungry – it MUST be dinner time.
Just an ickle snack of loveliness would keep us in our prime.”

“He could I s’pose provide a bell that we could learn to chime
Or provide us with tiny spoons and forks so we could do a mime.
Perhaps if we all tried very hard to learn the skill of rhyme
He might make the effort to feed his fish each day at the proper TIME!!!”

    Did your ickle fishes have ickle fishes after all their frolickings???

    I think they’re too young …… I reckon that they are at the ‘doctors and nurses’ stage ….. [note to self – build them a bicycle shed]

    You’d better get a move on young Madeleine …… fish go off very quickly …..

    Drunken Madeleine replied:

    yes… which is why I once spent hours sitting on my dad’s pond and he walked up to me and said… “You’re not plotting to eat that are you ? “

    What a lovely little piece of doggerel. . . I don’t think I have ever seen the word
    “ickle” used so many times in one place.

    daddyp replied:

    It’s a word I hear rather a lot ……. unfortunately …..

    Don’t take out your fish for a walk
    Or listen to hear when they talk
    And as for the food
    They think it is good
    To chomp on a gnat on a stalk.


    Fish for nutrition
    Eat very small insects found
    On surface tension
