There he is …… the sticklebacks

The Corcrain River

the wee man with his dog at his heel

he had caught some sticklebacks the other day

he put in a bucket

and took home

and put them

in a goldfish bowl

And then decided he should put them back

So he took them to the river

But feared that he fall in he stood too far from the edge

He then threw them from the bucket

But they landed on the grass

He watched them die

He was sad
