Poetry Day: Aquarium of Montgomery Drawlls

Yahoo Image Search

(This is a silly poem I made about an aquarium with unique creatures.  I would make poems like this just to flex my imagination.  It’s similar to Bestiary of Blatherhorn Vale, which I made years ago.)

If you find yourself near Abernath Falls

I suggest you visit old Montgomery Drawlls

He lives down the lane and on top of the hill

You may find yourself in for quit a rare thrill

*

Montgomery Drawlls is a friendly old coot

His jokes are famous for making everyone hoot

But his greatest achievement to which he can claim

Is his aquarium full of rare pets that are tame

*

Delicate Mottlefish swim up near the glass

Gathered to form a squirming polka-dot mass

A snorting Gornaxe suns his flab in the sun

Turning upside-down once his downside-up is done

*

Under a bridge are the flat-bellied Flaks

Feeding on floating crumbs that fall onto their backs

They scatter when startled by a fleet-finned Vurk

Known far and wide for being a jerk

*

The scary Latriko drifts near with long teeth

Devouring any that come near his reef

Except for the innocent Duringer Whale

Who grows no bigger than a garden snail

*

Multi-armed Hulgarts and barely seen Phems

Cackling pods of purple-skinned Shrems

Deep diving Irglos and a lonely Trunk-A-Lunk Frinx

All the creatures are playing until the sun sinks

*

Stop by the aquarium of Montgomery Drawlls

As long as you pay, you can pass through his walls

He has never turned any guests away

From where the rare and the strange splash water all day

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.
