WALKABOUTSVERSE 204 OF 230

Poem 204 of 230:  ON FISHING REGULATION

It’s not just what’s-taken
    That needs regulation:
Alive, caught fish suffer -
    Sometimes, right till supper;
And, when some fish are farmed,
    Homing instincts are harmed.
But to most it’s insane
    To fret over such pain -
Though as much to a dog
    Would leave many agog.
