I acquired a friend quite recently
Who lives just across the room from me
Whereby my pillow I constant see
His acrobatic activity.
He lives in this house made of thick glass
He makes no noise and doesn’t harass
A more perfect mate one could not ask
Although his presence creates small task.
He requires a meal but once a day
Always remains clear out of my way
Daily the water starts to turn gray
Friday’s the day we flush dirt away.
I still have this friend at my address
I pray he moves soon so I can rest !
HIS NAME IS PHELPS, A BEETA FISH
