Fake Sushi


In this modern era
Of rampant fakery
With fake things everywhere.

It is hard to know
When something is real
Or is fake.

About a year ago
A scientific study
Confirmed what many
Sushi lovers have long felt.

That half of the sushi
One consumes
Is fake sushi.

Not the fish
You thought you were eating
But a cheaper cut of fish
But still probably real fish.

Just for example
Most tuna
Is not actually tuna.

Most salmon
Especially wild salmon
Is not real either.

In a world of fake things
Even the sushi we eat
Is probably fake sushi.

That ‘s just the way
It goes
In this fake
Modern we live in.

Today's WINNER:

STATIC Ambush (E)
A lost troop plan an attack.
