#4 - Fish Without Names

O to be a shanny,
a lookdown, a turbot,
a grouper, a snapper,
a clownfish - what dreams!

To be named like a snipefish,
a brittlestar, pipefish,
harlequin rasbora,
a lungfish or bream!

Even white crappie
would make me feel happy,
or a royal tang
(that's my first wish)

but on the deck of this smack,
I'm not salmon nor sprat,
I'm just fish, I'm just fish,
I'm just 'fish'
