Chicken Big, 18

Frightening Doggerel

Gone (from) Fishin’: icthyophobia

His boyhood’s greatest single wish
Was that he’d never see a fish.

They frightened him, those swimming things
That had no lungs, no fur, no wings.

His parents tried so hard to teach
Him. Took him to a nearby beach,

A nice place—like a public park.
But he got eaten by a shark.

The moral? Here it’s very clear:
There sometimes is a cause for fear.
