I was looking for someone to describe for this assigemant- and suddenly I saw him.
Our combat (or battle) fish - Phillipe - who never shares his aquarium with others..
His nature is to be alone, otherwise he fights his partner.. and one of them evantually dies.
Day after day
For almost a year
You welcome us,
with a glance --
and an honorable cheer.
on your isolated kingdom
from the day you were born,
with no real option for freedom.
We watch you restless,
Or perhaps complete -
Circling the only partner you are able to stand,
One fake plant
that even you already know is a cheat
Everyone who examines you closely,
discovers a great amount of beauty –
Bourdeaux with touches of blue
Such an exciting and irregular view.
Satisfied with so little,
gives us so many
Philippe – our royal fish –
The one and ONLY.
