No Deep Sea Biologists Have Died of Exploding Fish*

Alas, poor James, so he believed,
But then they dragged the net too deep.
He knew swim bladders do expand,
But, unaware how much they can,
Eager James leaned o'er the trawl--
Crustaceans, jellies, fish, and all.
Dear Jim died when a fish exploded--
He didn't think rattails were loaded.
