Around, around, around, around (Fish in a glass bowl)



See the green fish in a glass bowl
with nothing inside his little soul
swimming the same circuit daily
looking scruffy and really scaly

Around, around, around, around
just like upon a merry-go-round

Around, around, around, around!

Around, around, around, around
just like upon a merry-go-round

He has short term memory loss
and what he has to say, is dross
everybody knows that just sucks
that his input is on constant influx

Around, around, around, around
just like upon a merry-go-round

Around, around, around, around!

Around, around, around, around
just like upon a merry-go-round

His reputation is slowly degrading
but his ignorance keeps him going
the fish thinks he is a tiger shark
but everybody knows that is a lark

Around, around, around, around
just like upon a merry-go-round

Around, around, around, around!

Around, around, around, around
just like upon a merry-go-round

It is the same sh*t, same shovel
as he swims in his slimy hovel
feeding of others like a vulture
and has no value for his culture

Around, around, around, around
just like upon a merry-go-round

Around, around, around, around!

Around, around, around, around
just like upon a merry-go-round

His life goes in a circular motion
and he seems to have no emotion
he is now a big pain in the arse
that green fish in a bowl of glass

Around, around, around, around
just like upon a merry-go-round

Around, around, around, around!

Around, around, around, around
just like upon a merry-go-round

Around, around, around, around,
around, around, around, around,
around, around, around, around,
around.................(ect)

Mick Reid

I like to write all sorts of themes in my poetry. i mainly use rhyming poetry, some from personal experiences and some from characters i develop in my mind. i can be very strong with emotional use in my poetry. some have little twists, real life situations, humor and of course love, sadness, ect. more…
