A fluke has eyes that move all over his head.
This guarantees that he stays far ahead,
Of other fish that want him for lunch,
Or add him as a flavor to a nightly milk punch.
Lying around on the floor of the ocean,
While other fish around him are always in motion.
A fluke looks lazy, but he's really clever and sly.
Always thinking, "I'll just grab a fish when it swims by.
With two eyes on one side, flukes rarely make a mistake.
Fluke is a name of this fish, but it also means "lucky break!"
