    I came across this poem and thought it was cute, especially for those of us familiar with the "egg song".

    A codfish lays a thousand eggs,
    the homely hen but one.
    The codfish never cackles,
    to tell you what she's done.
    And so we scorn the codfish
    while the humble hen we prize.
    Which only goes to show you,
    it pays to advertise.
