I challenged a friend to a random subject writeoff. This is what I came up with on the subject of fish...


To be, in the river of the living.
Each second a drop, flowing from the oceans of time.

To watch, the fleeting moments of reality.
A gift worthy of kings, given to us all.

To be, a fish in the river of consciousness.
Each second a choice, making your way toward the oceans of time.
