Doorbell Salmon


Press a summoning spell,
have a compelling story to tell.


A door’s companion, missing one is the equivalent of ringing famine.
It’s like the North Atlantic missing its salmon.


If you’re not sure and not specific,
you might as well get lost in the North Pacific.


People get up in a fit of joy when pressed,
salmon become coy when caviar is laid to rest.


Going on a salmon run is usually no fun,
it’s all uphill and definitely not fun,
bears with clamping jaws, weighing more than a ton.
Hunters equip their poles and shun their guns.


Bald eagle eyeing a salmon-y show,
like George Segal putting on a “Just shoot me!” show.
