Though my visitor is an excellent cook
who bought a fresh fish right off of the hook,
he said although sturgeon is usually reliable,
he found that this one was sadly not fryable.
Somehow, its innards were too well united
which meant that the rest of it could not be bited.
The end of the story is simply that
we tossed the fish to the dog and the cat,
got into the car and took a small ride
to purchase burgers with fries on the side.
The irony, though, of our untasted sturgeon
is that my guest was a prominent surgeon!
