We lost our little family goldfish "Splashy" over the weekend...(we got her LAST weekend, she lasted 5 days.) So, as per request by my daughter, this is an "Ode To Splashy"...please bow your heads.
A MEMORIAL DAY MEMORIAL TO SPLASHY
Splashy was a really good fish
Until my mom decided to clean her dish.
She was my new pet, you see.
Mom said, "Trust your baby to me!"
The job filled her with delight
But soon became a giant fright.
We fed her and loved her over the week.
But turns out her little heart was bleak.
We watched her not eating in her bowl.
That's when her stomach started to roll.
We watched her take her final breath
As she swam down to her death.
There was a silent hush
As we made the final flush.
When mom told me that she died
I bowed my little head and cried.
