The day the food came

I’d like to present a short play entitled “The day the food came”…

You can have as many ‘actors’ as you wish, however they fit into four roles: Big Fish; Little Fish; cardboard box; Shrimp; Live Food.

In the première, Big fish was played by Mollies and Platys; Little Fish was played by baby Mollies, baby Platys, Enders Guppies and some tetras; Shrimp were played by some, erm, shrimp; and Live Food was performed by by daphnies and brine shrimp…

Shrimp :
   “The food god is coming. We can feel his presence in the ground”.
BigFish & LittleFish :
   “Food? Food!”
Shrimp :
   “Be patient… the food god doesn’t only bring food. Sometimes he brings death or small ornaments.”
BigFish & LittleFish :
   “Foooooood!”
Shrimp :
   *sigh*

Meanwhile, elsewhere…

LiveFood :
   “It’s got brighter. And warmer. We must be out of the fridge. Wake up guys. Wake up! Ergh – that’s not Bob, that’s an empty shell. Warming up, we’re warming up, we must be about to escape to the great oceans our great * X^87585 grandfathers told us about!”

Back in the tank…

BigFish & LittleFish :
   “Foooooooooooooooooooooood?”
Shrimp :
   “The ground moves again…”
BigFish & LittleFish :
   “Foooooooooooooooooooooood!”

LiveFood enter stage… top.

LiveFood :
   “We’re free!”
BigFish :
   “More mouths to feed? Damn.”
LittleFish :
   “Hello! Do you want to be friends?”
Shrimp :
   “Oo, these old shells are tasty…”
BigFish & LittleFish :
   “They’re edible? Omnomnomnomnomnomnomnomnom”
LiveFood :
   “Nooooooooo…!”
BigFish & LittleFish :
   “Omnomnomnomnomnomnomnomnom”

BigFish & LittleFish :
   “Nom?”

BigFish & LittleFish :
   “Where’d all the food go?”
Shrimp :
   “Some say the Food God bringeth and he taketh away. Others think you’ve gutsed the lot.”

BigFish :
   “There must be something else to eat…?”
LittleFish :
   “Nooooooooo…!”

    I just love your sense of humour….and your fish! But you missed out the audience, in the form of two interested black felines, just hoping that some of the actors would exit stage left to be pursued not by a bear but a cat!

    Staircase wit at its worst, but I’m playing with the wp app for my phone…

    “You mean exeunt om-nom-nom-nomnes?”

    It wasn’t worth the wait, was it…?
