Lewis Carrollfish? A semi-original composition.

'Twas evening and the Barbs in droves

Did dive and tumble in the waves;

Quite frisky were the Borneos,

But one Clown Loach looked grave

"Beware the Pictus Cats my friends!

They gobble and they snatch!

The smallest fish will meet their ends

Unless they're very hard to catch!"

But one Tiger Barb was very brave

And fortified with Tetramin

Devised a plan to beat the knaves

And nibble on their fins

Up, down! Around and 'round!

He led them on a merry chase

'Till drooping, drowsy, quite fatigued

The Pictus Cats collapsed

"So you've worn out the greedy cats?

Come share the bloodworms then

The tubifex, and freeze dried shrimp!

(Just don't nibble on my fins!)"
