what is that squishy thing o’er yonder?
it’s milky translucency, like sand on the beach
makes me wonder what is Vertebrate and anthropoid
for not all that meets the eye is as it seems
The waves crash on oceanic floor with mighty brute and force
it’s vast strength can nether be measured or compared
the creatures of the sea, all respiring and moving
because half of earth population does not live on land
the Ray-fish reminds one of IT, the clown
The sun fish, the hunchback of Notre dame who never belonged
if the sea otters weren’t the darn cutest things in this world
grooming one and the next from sun rise to dusk.
I wish I knew jelly fishes before shark tale
coz they really do look like Rastafari
deep radiance under the Oceanarium’s reef
emerges new life camouflaged in blue.
They follow the leader
wallowing in tandem schools
to appease the deity, their serpentine goddess
