A fish decided to leave the ocean
to him it seemed like an unsilly notion
only knowing he wanted to be "out there"
walking on land and breathing fresh air
one day he decided to make the jump
and landed on land, all lumped in a lump
he picked himself up and off he went
he quite liked the humans
despite their scent
he saw lots of people and went lots of places
but it wasn't the same and missed his friends' faces
he had fun and he learned and was glad for the trip
but packed up and went quickly back with a zip!
there's no place like home, it's like Dorothy said
and woke the next morning back on the sea bed
the fish thought it out and a thought did occur
sometimes where you belong is right where you were.
