A PREHISTORIC PET FISH


 
An international team of researchers says a fish called Microbrachius dicki is the first-known animal to stop reproducing by spawning and instead mate by having sex.
The primitive bony fish, which was about 8cm long, lived in ancient lakes about 385 million years ago in what is now Scotland.
The research is published in the journal Nature.

Young King Tut had a pet fish

That lived in a town called Kish.

The fish's name was Dicki

And he was mighty picky

About what VICTUALS he ate

AND WITH WHOM to propagate.

Autumn


 
This is the first day of autumn,

But the last leaf has not fallen---

And there is still a rose blossom!


Autumn's not the season of decay---

For proof interrogate the blue jay.

There was an Old Man who gave the world much laughter


There was an Old Man who gave the world

Much laughter

Who decided to travel to the

Hereafter.

His act was as funny

In the Kingdom of God

As it was in Cape Cod,

From this Old Man who gave the world

Much laughter.

THERE WAS A YOUNG MAN FROM THRACE


There was a Young Man from Thrace

Who visited outer space,

But it put him into a big funk

When he saw that there was so much junk

Up there in outer space

For this Young Man who came from Thrace.

There once was an Australian


 
 
There once was an Australian

Who was really an Alien.

He believed that he was from the planet Earth,

But he had an extraterrestrial birth,

This Australian who was an Alien.

THERE WAS AN OLD HIPPIE FROM BOULDER


There was an Old Hippie from Boulder

Whose hair grew a foot below his shoulder.

Each week he smoked a pound of grass,

AND IT was better than laughing gas,

For this Old Hippie from Boulder!

WHILE FALLING ASLEEP


 
Breathe the air

While it's there;

Breath the air

While it's fair.

Breathe.

Breathe.

Breathe the air;

Breathe the sweet, sweet air

While it's here.
