Silverfish

A Poem by zainul
"

Story of strange fish

"

This is a strange looking fish

It lives in places without water

You will never like it on your dish

I bet it is stranger than Harry Potter

 

You will get it in your lovely book

It may emerge from bags and clothing

You will find it in dark and humid nook

It may ruin your precious thing

 

This strange creature secretly ate

Sixty kilos of delicious peanut

It never appeared to express regret

For plundering poor farmer’s hut

 

This creature has silvery body with six legs

It moves in a wiggling motion like a fish

Though an insect it is always wingless

It has the magical power to vanish

 

If you want to get rid of the filthy bug

Find the places where it lives in your home

Consult an expert who knows how to debug

But never panic as it has no venom

Seems like a metaphor for how that which enlightens [lovely books] and that which nourishes [food] can get destroyed in subtle unseen ways - though not cause for fear, it needs an expertise [discernment] to detect.

Just some thoughts on a textured poem, beautifully written.

Nice write man . . . Though one can obviously take it in the literal sense, It is easy to see passed that literal sense.
You almost wrote it in a style of a very short story - even sounded a bit like a children's book - loved it!
Thanks for sharing :)
