this is a serious poem
it makes a serious point
it's not like the other poems
that are littered around this joint
they're all frivolous fancies
approached with little care
whereas this is very serious
written in my serious chair
no whimsical or fantastical
outlandish or bizarre
keeping the playful nonsense
locked in the silly reservoir
with the silly fish
the smoking salmon
and tickled trout
the meme bream
and comic carp
mirthful minnows
possibly paralytic perch
some giddy graylings
and a high gudgeon

oh no...
there's been a leak
the damns have burst

better ring a barbel
and call it a dace
