Sound and Sense, 80

1. gild (verb):to cover something with a thin layer of gold
2. gilled (adj.): equipped with gills (like a fish!), organs for obtaining oxygen from water
3. guild (noun): an organized group of people who have joined together because they share the same job or interest; esp. an association of people who made or sold goods in the Middle Ages

Well, Frankie Fish believed a guild
Comprising members who were gilled
Would be a certain way to gild

His bank account. He gathered fish—
And to them all announced his wish—
But watched his dream just sadly squish.

They didn’t think the thing was fair—
Not here, not there, not anywhere,
And so they took Frank to the air

And left him there.
Flop, flop.
