At sometime in the past
Somebody nibbled fish on Friday
And then, for reasons not quite clear,
Conspired to create "Fry Day."
Some say it's a religious thing
And others, purely business –
In either case, the crowds end up
Consuming lots of fish flesh.
And yet one question seems to taunt the masses:
What's the truth?
Why do we propagate a practice
Some folks find uncouth?
Some people seek profundity
And some, a juicy story,
But here's my take:
A simpler motive fuels this allegory…
Revenge must be the driving force
Behind this fishy tale.
I think that Jonah started it
So we'd consume the whale!
