Gates of heaven

Last night

my goldfish

died,

driven insane

by syphilis

***

I guess I really

should have been

better about

changing the water

***

As atonement,

I wanted

the fish to have a

proper

Christian burial,

but, for all

my re-search,

I could find

nothing

on the subject

***

So, taking

a page from

the Bible,

I wrapped the

fish in it.

***

Bon voyage, old friend.
