Beavis the Goldfish

The fish I asked for

The fish I couldn’t have

The fish I didn’t choose

The fish I now have


Survival of the fittest

Game of life

Odds of winning


The small thing you were

Orange and black

Dashing out of the way

Growing big everyday


A feeder fish you were

A comet you now are

Large and scarlet orange


My dearest Beavis

I love you so

Four years of growing

Growing old


Going in a pond

My pond


Oh little fishy

Best, I ever had


Unfortunately, Beavis died before he went into the pond that I was going to build for him. It broke my heart. He was over 4” long when he died.
