It Figures #29

You look at
A Fish Out of Water,
And the thought
That he doesn’t belong
Sizzles across your brain
As you watch him
Slowly wave his fin
And gape his mouth.

There’s no little black button
To make this boy sing a
Country and western song
Because this is not discount day
At the dollar store.

This is the real Barbie
With fallen arches,
A six-week-old dye job,
And a water bra.

This is the CIO without an I
The CEO without an E
And the COO with an
Oh
My.

This fish is out of water.
