To flounder,
use a pounder
it goes like a rounder
and ends in the founder.

Later it goes to the grinder

Nobody seems to mind
or seems to be kind
but hopefully
somebody will found the flounder.

A piece of biography, or polemical fiction, like most of this poet's work
that I've seen (not much, I have to say!). The poet (not the child,
surely!) identifies with a flounder, but surely not with the flounder's
desperation. Emotion invented in tranquility.

John Trethewey from United Kingdom
