Fish Haiku

By
More by this author
Little fish of red,
you were caught and wrapped in rice.
Old man is hungry.

Chill here on the plate.
Run! Chopstick coming for you!
Wait- you cannot move.

Stuck on a sharp hook,
you were late for school today.
They won't wait for you.

Goldfish, where are you?
In the belly of a shark.
I liked you, goldfish.

Wait...hahaha this is awesome!  This poem shifts abruptly many times, and the haiku format works for that kind of stark transitioning, so the humor is only magnified by these switches.  Well done.  The only thing is the goldfish part needs a bit more of a tie-in because I'm left wondering what the back story is.
