CATFISH
The first time I saw that

We had come by a cat

I said, ‘Do you then wish

To weigh in with some fish?’

But as it would grow up a male,

It would not stay to scale.

    The first time I saw a chop saw in a box was the time it was used to chop up some locks, which was odd as the locks had locked up that box — or did I mean clocks?

    I do not think this is a breeze
    I cannot write with much ease
    I have to think about what to write
    This could keep me up all night
    So I will leave it all to you
    To write the words so clear and true
