Virgin sturgeon

Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, sturgeon have become endangered by uncontrolled fishing and poaching.

English is so peculiar that “virgin” and “sturgeon” rhyme:

Caviar comes from the virgin sturgeon.
Virgin sturgeon’s a very fine fish.
Virgin sturgeon need no urgin’–
That’s why caviar is my dish!

Have you heard about the Sturgeon,
Russia’s source of food supply?
Virgin sturgeon need no urgin’—
And here’s the reason why:

Years ago, when we were tadpoles
In Paleozoic slime,
No one needed any urgin’
And we all had lots of time.
