Poetry of Kansas


BIG fish have little fish
      On which to make their dinners,
And little fish have lesser fish
      And so the thing continners.
Just turn the thing around about
      'Twill work the other way, sir,
For big fish find bigger fish
      To catch 'em every day, sir.

__Albert Bigelow Paine.
