In the deep blue sea lived Finny the little fish
She swam in the deep waters wherever she’d wish.
Her Mama told her to be careful of monsters in the dark
But she wasn’t scared of anything, even a shark!
She scared the crabs awake while they slept
And took a ride on the sea horses as they leapt.
She tied up the octopus with a big pink knot
And painted the star fish with big black spots.
Finny was brave but she was silly too
For she never listened to what not to do.
One day as she watched two turtles fight
A shadow appeared and blocked the light.
While all her friends found places to hide
Finny swam to find out what was on the other side.
The next thing she knew, she was caught in a fishing net
The more she struggled, the more tied up she’d get.
The fisherman felt bad for the little one
And threw her back from where she’d come.
Scared little Finny sobbed and sobbed till her Mama told
“As long as you are smart, you can be bold!”
