wFish-course revolution ww14 August 2011

We take out our backbones
stacking them, neatly,
on the sides of our plates

We are always polite in defeat,
invertebrate lovers of fish-knives

Our flesh parts easily in segments,
makes no complaint at intrusion

Bluntness dissects us, decorative
and silver, bone by bone.
We always do as we are told
