poems of my crew

ok so im bored and this is just spilling out LOL im not very good at this so no critics please


Teddy Bear

“Just another fish” I heard the store clerk say
“Just another fish, im too busy to waste my day”
A container of filth held a small fish inside
He saw me there and spread opened his fins
Not a thought had been spared for the little soul within
Swimming around or laying on the bottom he awaited his fate
With his water disgusting I decide he’d become my new mate
But I’d come to his aid deciding him to give him proper care
To a clean watered tank and at last some fresh air
Some friends to meet and a new name.... Teddy Bear


*******




Free Willy

He caught my eye one visit there
I loved his little flare
His perfect tail and colour to match
He is one I defiantly had to snatch
His fins were a mess
Nothing like the rest
The curved over dorsal looked familiar
And thus his name became clear
From that day on he will be known without sneer
As simply little Free Willy.

******************

Ron Weasly *aka Won won*


To me he came as a last minute addition
His pefect spread was found on a mission
His colour unique , he looks like a geek
His hues of orange and red, he will defiantly be bred
His offspring I’ll name after him, some girls and some boys
I am sure this will cause a lot of noise
A lot of names came to mind but in the end too nothing measly
About my ginger trimmed lad, who goes by the name Ron Weasly

******************

Barney
His white intrigued me, his happy dance so proud
He flashed and he shimmered and acted so loud
His big eyes go buggy whenever im near
Along with his nests we both do a little cheer
He sleeps like a log, I try to sneak past
Im busted, I’m spotted at once he pretends to be famished
I sulk and give in and feed him again, and then the food has vanished
He acts like a carnie there for hes named Barney.



More coming... thoughts welcome critics need not comment lol

Pippin

The hue of red that first I had seen and began to pray

A secret surprise had been hidden away

Several days he settled in until the day I was given him

A birthday gift one from the heart nothing so dim

With masked face and spotted fins

For me this defiantly has to be a win

A dubbing unusual had came to my mind

Wasnt waiting for anyone else to chip in

But introduced my new little Pippin


Spongebob
Who lives underwater, with yellow galore
With long trailing fins and dances amore
His body sings a song of content
Hes always happy and stirs in torment
Happy and gentle no real harm is meant
A well know character without the same vice
To name him I asked only one others advice
No sassy name for him, but a funny one to chant
Of course its him, Its SpongeBob Fish Pants

Sheldon
Bright blues and purple hues
A little red wash over the top, his fins a little skewed
A gentle man, loving and big hearted
Bore a strong resemblance to a loved one departed
He is Dastan again, my very dear friend
I didn’t hesitate the money to spend
I’ll give him a home until his end, by the time this is penned
His name down in history for us a new friend
Without a blooper he’s known now as
Sheldon Cooper.



Fat Louie
With the death of Tamina, another I sought
Swimming around my eye he caught
His little ghostly frame, Casper he resembled
But more than a ghost his little body trembled
He darted about with fins see through
Soon he livened up and his clear became blue
His colour entwined with his mood
Happiness is a light blue to green hue, returning to opaque and clear shows him brood
He has fattened and sprouted
and won a few fights but oh well,oh poohey
His name you wonder well, he's Fat Louie

Melvin
You’re an oddball fish, your constantly changing
These days your color change has me almost fainting
White and blue to begin with now a motley purple hue too
To my crew I knew I had to add you
Your antics and odd look had me cutting the queue
I brought you home to join the rest
Where you tried so hard to be the best
But first to name you Delvin, no, elvin,
Neither did work, so I settled on Melvin.

Benny
Blue butterfly with white twisted fins
Once long free flowing now a chewed off mess
would come to be a fighting fish I guess
Your dark blue hue lightened in patches
A little moustache and a few scratches
Now stain your dark blue hue
But you let none of that deter you and your heart stays true
You're not to be trifled with your always a struttin’
Your commonly known as Mr Benjamin Button

Fredric

Another Agent came to join us, his hues of reds and gold

A brother to the other for sure I am told

Yet none hold a resemblance to him of old

Yet another fish to join the ranks so another name in need

Another Agent I’ll name him, another mouth to feed

Brother to Cedric go now forth as Fredrick!

Nero
Your little messy tail caught my eye that day
So you came with me home to stay
With reds and silvers you became my second fish
For you a name I couldn’t pick but you really wanted one I wish
With a four ray crown you quickly became my hero
Nothing more to say, you got named Nero

Charz
A massive spread once caught my eye
A four ray crown tail you made me buy
To expand my gems and line of royalty
Ive promised to give you my devoted loyalty
For name ideas I looked to Jupiter Saturn and Marz
Eventually I gave up and called you Charz

Girls
Nine girls have come to me, some have now passed on
Tamina and lilly, Scarlett and Caela
Bronxie, Cinder, Ailie, Lexi and little Rayne
Come to live in a planted tank that
Quickly became a spot to watch
As my gems danced through the night
They twist and turn this way and that
And shimmer different colours
Little faces happy wait eager
Always waiting for an audience to wiggle their girly butts.

Resting In Peace
Sadly to the rainbow waters Dastan has ventured, Tamina was already waiting for him there
Lilly, Scarlett and Calea soon followed along with my little silver knight Marshall
All are seeking the warm inviting waters to where they can swim and play
Where no longer will they be sick or hurt or in pain of any sort
Frolicking in the streams leading off and waiting for me there
Till one day I can sit on the edge and dangle my toes in the water
Then im sure through the running water ill see
The familiar faces staring back at me.

Those are great! I'd get writers block if I tried to think of poems for all my bettas.

I don't want to hijack your thread but here is a betta poem I wrote the other day. I posted it in the art section so you may have seen it already...

“Little Life”

You sit in a little bowl, a little life, a little soul
Every day you watch and wait for a wish come true, a twist of fate
You tell yourself to just hold on, your day will come it won’t be long
Then one day someone picks you up, your little life, in your little cup
You wiggle and dance all over the place, an answered prayer, your saving grace
Now you’re in a nice new home, plants, clean water, and room to roam
So little one swim and be free for your little life will be spent with me
A little soul, a little heart, a brand new day a brand new start
