Don't Ever Put Fish in your Pants

Listen to Shaun read his poem ...
“Don’t ever put fish in your pants,” Mom said.
“Not catfish, or salmon or trout.”
But for scientific purposes
I decided to test it out.
Now my trousers are swimming with herring,
My pockets are stuffed full of shad
And the only thing I have learned is this:
I’m starting to stink pretty bad.
