the lowly codfish

The following inscription was discovered on an outhouse door somewhere on the northeast coast.

The codfish lays 10,000 eggs,
The hen she lays but one.
The codfish she makes ne'er a sound,
The hen cackles when she's done.
Now the lowly cod she gets no praise,
But our hen, she's such a prize,
Which only goes to show ya,
That it pays to advertise.
