    • POEM: Caring For A Dead Fish by Pete Crowther (8/1/2007 5:28:00 AM)

      I had a fish - a spiny sailfinned Plecostomus, called Norman. I had him for a little over 10 years. When he died back in February, he had grown from his original 3/4' to about 10' long. Not only was he too big to flush, but frankly I didn't feel right sending him off in that time honoured way. So we gave him a viking burial - launched him in a box, complete with sail and figurehead, ablaze on a local river. As part of his send-off, a close friend had done some research, and read out your poem just prior to the launch. Thanks for the words!
