Abie the Fishman

Glides ‘round the sea.

Warding off sharks ‘til

It’s time for his tea.

Abie’s part man

The other half fish

And when on your carpet

His feet go, “squish, squish!”

He can breathe underwater

Through gills on his neck

But he’s still very willing

To take a rain check.

Disadvantages: he has to

Avoid fishing nets

And his sandwiches always

End up soaking wet.

And yet he can gab with

Bass, tuna and whale.

Except for the orcas

Which cause him to quail.

You can read his book

Of tales underwater

Once he receives

His Mom’s imprimatur.
