 its in a school and not a church

where you will find the "pew" of perch
 
a sunfish ain't filet of 'sol"
a rock cod doesn't rock and roll
 
a virgin sturgeon lays no eggs
a cat has whiskers but no legs
 
its opportune when tuna's fresh
a trout has rainbows on it's flesh
 
do swordfish challenge friends to duels ?
are hammerheads employed as tools ?
 
there's fish that fly while some have sails
a fish, polite, may tip it's scales
 
a salmon sandwich ? fun to chew
piranhas make a meal of you
 
anchovies spoil a pizza pie
although some choose to pile them high
 
some fish, when served, still have a head
while some like blow fish, kill you dead
 
a sculpin's sculptured like mad art
a darter's never thrown a dart
 
a halibut is nice and flat
an eel, more like a baseball bat
 
there's angelfish and devils too
a fin of yellow, fin of blue
 
a lungfish has both lungs and gills
a tarpon tests your fishing skills
 
a garibaldi's bald as hell
a puffer fish with pride, will swell
 
there's lion fish and tigers, known
the bear fish sadly, hasn't shown
 
some fish are caught from holes in ice
and then served hot with piles of rice
 
forget the jelly and the star
they ain't the fish you think they are
