Her favourite foods were prawns and chocolate.
I wondered if she would be fooled
by torn pieces of plastic
She ate them eagerly.
Spat them out
her look of disgust clearly expressing her thinking,
“I wasn’t born yesterday, I’m ten years old
and I’m not one of them brain dead sea fish either!
Oh, and cut out the raspberries,
I’m not a fuckin’ blackbird either!”
Then she blew a few bubbles,
swished her tail
and went in search of tadpoles.
