Bedtime Story

“Big as a house it was!
I never knew goldfish had teeth
Until that moment.

I’d gone from predator to prey
Diving the depths of that
Florida bay.

I was but a nibble.
The manatee he ate was
A much better portion.

And that’s how I escaped.”
Little Charlie giggled.
“Grandpa, there’s no such thing.”

“Oh, but there is!
And that is why, sweet boy,
we never let goldfish

Swim in the toilet.”
