Good evening Pierre, what’s on the menu?
Tonight we are featuring Cannonball Jellyfish
Sounds yummy. How is it prepared?
With our special Beamaise sauce and rice
Excellent, I’ll have that with a fresh salad
But the young lady will have orange roughy
Oh, I’m so sorry but we no longer have it.
Really, I’m surprised. What happened?
Ocean fish has become quite scarce
I hadn’t heard. Fishermen on strike?
No, they overfished but can’t admit it
Their fishing boats are rotting in ports
Bring my lady a big feta cheese salad.
Addressing his tablemate he opines
I believe that the waiter exaggerates.
The lady leaned forward and whispered
My neighbor teaches botany at college
He says toxic runoff from cornfields
Has created huge dead zones in oceans
Pesticides kill algae making a blanket
On the ocean floor killing marine life
The very foodstuff for schools of fish
If that’s so, why am I eating jellyfish?
The big fish species live on jellyfish, sooh
The less marine life, the more jellyfish.
Too soon, jellyfish will dominate the menu.
