Our Beautiful Betta

We put our Betta in a small glass bowl,
And wondered its beauty as it was colorful,
A candy to our eyes, was the precious fish,
As we were just kids!

We wake up to see the beautiful creature,
With its colorful tail swimming aimlessly,
And we thought to give him a friend,
Introduced another and went to school.

Came back to see the beautiful fish,
Strip the other fish off its tail,
Our jaws dropped, shrieking for help,
As the beauty changed into a beast!
