Cast a Sprat to catch a Mackerel

Follow it down to where it leads

Oak trees grow from little acorns

Justice spawns from little seeds

 

Cast a Sprat to catch a Mackerel

Watch them sweat in shiny beads

Drag the bottom of the ocean

Down where only plankton feeds

 

Cast a Sprat to catch a Mackerel

The bigger the fish, the greater the greed

Separate the minor Herring

From the sharks who choose to lead

 

Cast a sprat to catch a Mackerel

Where the flora chokes the weeds

Three little fishies sent to Hades

While Cod hides out amongst the reeds

 

Cast a Sprat to catch a Mackerel

No law of fish can e’er impede

The seeking out of graceless Blowfish

The bigger fish had better heed
