  midnight you are so beautiful
you patrol the tank so dutiful
ever curious, nothing your nose doesn't need to be in
is it a shrimp, maybe I can touch it
is it a crayfish, maybe I can prod it
what about that Gourami, he's not such big stuff
don't understand what his deal is, I only touched him
the catfish are much more understanding
they do nothing when I drag my flowing fins over them
I'm the most pleasent guy in the tank
I love everyone
I just want to touch them, that's all

I like it, except where it changes from second person to first person narration. Pretty cute poem, though.
