Ye Gods and Little Godfish

God, I meant to say gold

fish, but what the hell...enic

world really needed was codfish


if you know what I mean or meant 

before godfish carried me away like salmon 

leaping and flopping upstream


to imagine, just try to imagine all those 

little suckers up there, what they look like, 

Ye Gods and little godfish.


slice 'em and dice 'em

roll 'em in breadcrumbs

toss 'em in a frying pan

with some garlic and lemon juice


cook those little suckers alive

two minutes on either side

watch them wiggle and jiggle

and burn into gold


Ye Gods, these tasty

little godfish what a treat

to eat such delicate meat

on Mississippi mud
