Fish Haiku #26

Soldiers leave Camp Victory . . .

Who will feed The Fish?

Our first link: from The Washington Post

Camp Victory, the U.S. military headquarters in Iraq, getting ready to close, by Annie Gowen.
[ . . . ]

The base eventually came to have its own myths and urban legends, such as the often-told story about the outsize carp that still swim in the lake outside the al-Faw palace. These fish were said to have developed a taste for human flesh after they were fed Hussein’s victims, a tale that has never been substantiated. They will eat a baby duck whole, however; you can see it on their fan Web site.

We thank Annie Gowen of The Washington Post for sharing us, The Fish at Al-Faw Palace, with all humanity, as part of our World Heritage. Well done!

PS. We welcome Washington Post readers. Please check back again in a month or so.
