The Cod Fish Talks

Dear Leader,

Do you promote your organization?

The codfish lays a thousand eggs
The homely hen but one.
 The codfish never cackles
                To tell you when she’s done.
And so we scorn the cod fish
                While the humble hen we prize,
Which only goes to show you
                That it pays to advertise.

Kurlansky, M. “Cod: A biography of the fish that changed the world” p. 29
