Stinky Fish - I pays my rent to the last cent. I keeps my room right clean - but what they do to me is wrong. It's really downright mean. On Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, too, and Thursdays, come to think it, I shake and shudder 'bout the fish that, on each Friday, stink it. Lord in Heaven, hear my prayer, a prayer that I must shout. It's for help with stinky fish. That's what my prayer's about. Friday's coming. Soon. Tomorrow. Those stinky fish (those plates of sorrow.) Don't get me wrong. Our cook is cool. It's me, I guess, who is the fool. So, there you have it, my prayer's done. All good grammar, mistakes none. My prayer's polite. It's purpose right. Help me in this stinkin' war Down with stink forever more. Lord, this is all of that I wish. Save us from those stinky fish. Image: Pixabay.com

@responsiveme - Friend ARM - I have my doubts as to that poem, and any fish that stinks is not a friend of mine. -Gus-

@responsiveme - Friend ARM - I love eating and I would rather eat a fish than be eaten by a fish. In the wide world of edibles, there is nothing "peculinary" about that, is there?-Gus-

Why is Friday reserved for fish? One of life's imponderables. Great poem, loved it.

@pgntwo - Friend PGN - As I recall, Friday fish was sort of a ritual promoted by the Catholic Church for its members. -Gus-

@Ceerios Surely. I wonder why Friday and not, say, Tuesday.

@pgntwo - Friend PGN - Essentially, it is because Tuesdays are gruel days. -Gus-

@responder - Glad you enjoyed the little poem. The idea for it came from some postings by @Hatley. -Gus-
