Fishbowl Philosophy

aquariumCedric was smart
Had a big heart
He was extraordinary
Had a big vocabulary
With all the intelligence
That could be packed
Into his little fish brain

He stared
Was sometimes scared
Especially, early mornings
When gigantic hands
Reached down
Sprinkled food
Without warning

Strange, grotesquely
Distorted creatures
With exaggerated features
And appendages
Pressed their faces
Enormous eyes
Against the glass

What was the
Meaning of life?
This little Piscean
Swam in his aquarium
Pondered epistemological
Vicissitudes, and said
“I swim, therefore I am”

    1. That’s the bane of all writers. One of the most creative ways to deal with it is to write poem or story about it. For example: …Writer’s block, I curse the day, you came my way, etc, etc… Describe with humor how it messes with your head, frustrates you, and how you plan to exact your revenge.
