Little fish, little fish,
Current-tossed fry,
Ninety-nine percent of your sibling-fish will die.
Eaten up, swallowed up,
Too small to run –
Ninety-nine percent – but you, will you be one ?
Little fish, little fish,
Dead before your teens.
Is it down to luck, or is it down to genes ?
Eaten up, swallowed up,
Labouring in vain –
A few of you will make it, to start it all again.
