"That's Why I Don't Eat Fish" —Zachary, 12

 

I've had pet fish since I was five
"George Washington" and "Jaws"
Some are gone and some are alive
But all made a mark on my heart

 

That's why I don't eat fish

That's why I don't eat fish

That's why I don't eat fish

 

That's why I don't eat fish

That's why I don't eat fish

That's why I don't eat fish

 

When I grow up, I want to study the sea
Take a submarine to the ocean floor
To the darkest depths, to the last frontier
And see what there is to explore

 

That's why I don't eat fish

That's why I don't eat fish

That's why I don't eat fish

 

That's why I don't eat fish

That's why I don't eat fish

That's why I don't eat fish

 

Fish are farmed in inhumane tanks
They cull and kill 'til the "best" are left
A fish farm is not where they need to be

I want to see them swimming free

 

That's why I don't eat fish

That's why I don't eat fish

That's why I don't eat fish

 

That's why I don't eat fish

That's why I don't eat fish

That's why I don't eat fish
