ICKLE THINGS PLEASE ICKLE MINDS

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!!!”

    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.

    or

    Fish for nutrition
    Eat very small insects found
    On surface tension
