As Stiff As Their Upper Lips

I haven’t fed the fish in weeks
But they’re distracted by the leaks
With which their tank has been beset
So they’re not importuning yet
Except of course for agua (mas)
To compensate them for the loss
That daily keeps accumulating.
Lucky me, they’re good at waiting.
Excuse me whilst I fill my cup.
The fish? They’re fine. See? Bellies up!
