Epitaph For Al



My Beta fish died over the weekend ... I suddenly noticed that the water had turned brown. I think I may have put too much water conditioner in the water. 20 drops instead of 12!

His name was "Al" ... nickname for "Alpha".

I wrote a quick poem for him:

A Poem For Alpha The Beta Fish

Al, You met the Omega
We hope you are now Vega

You may have wet died
But our tears have not dried

You were no beta test
You were a fish above the rest

We hope to see you swimmin'
In the fish bowls in heaven

Like Paul Simon said like a pal,
We will call you AL!
We will call you AL!
