28. Tilly the Tuna

Tilly the tuna did not know

What the future had in store

As she cavorted on the ocean floor

With friends : carp and minnow.

She was caught and taken to the factory

With the rest of the tuna family

Some to be pickled in brine

Others preserved in oil

Next time you open a can, have a care.

Tilly the tuna is somewhere in there.
