The Jewel Of The Orient

Color flickering through the glass
Reveals aquatic beauty unmatched.
This bright blue figure is detached
From the world around him at last.

Solitary life is his. Yet,
Existence in captivity
Fates him to passivity.
A consequence of being my pet.

What have I done to this fish?
Titus, a being breed to fight,
Is now an object of my delight.
I am human, always selfish.

I realize as I use my toothbrush:
“All pipes lead to the ocean”
Flush.
