If You Lived Under the Sea


If you lived under the sea, who would you be?
You have plenty to choose, from A DOWN TO Z!
Many things to consider, when you make your decision-
Let's look at all options, and choose with precision!

If you lived under the sea, who would you be?
Would you protect clown fish, like the ANEMONE?
Would you attach, like a BARNACLE, to the keel of a ship?
Or be a deep sea COD, later eaten with chips?

Where would you swim, if you lived under the waves?
As a DOLPHIN, would you just play in the bay?
Or snake like an EEL, under coral and rocks?
Venture onto the shore, where the FIDDLER CRAB walks?

Who'd be your friends, if under the ocean you dwelled?
A GIANT SQUID, with its tentacles, if you felt so compelled?
Or the flat HALIBUT, laying close to the ground?
Or would you crawl with the ISOPODS you found all around?

How would you move, if you had a watery home?
Would you propel gracefully, if you had a JELLYFISH dome?
As a KILLER WHALE would you glide, fast full of power?
Float like LEAFY SEA DRAGONS, that look like a flower?

In the sea where you'd live, in what house would you dwell?
A MUSSEL you say? In a long, bi-valve shell?
Could you live under the ice, like the long-toothed NARWHAL?
Or live like the OCTOPUS, hiding in coral?

In the ocean so deep, what size would you be?
Super tiny like PLANKTON, or other algae?
Or super skinny, like QUILLFISH, who seldom are seen?
Or a large REQUIEM SHARK, aggressive and mean?

What would you eat, if under the water you swam?
Would you act as a STARFISH and pry open a clam?
A TILEFISH eats small crustaceans for lunch,
While UMBRELLA SHELLS mostly feed on the sponge.

What kind of skin would you have, if you swam with finesse?
Would you be a VAMPIRE SQUID, who can bioluminesce?
Have a WALRUS' tough skin, but with lungs, and no gills-
Or wear scales like XIPHIAS-swordfish with long bills?

If you lived under the sea, who would you be?
A YELLOWFIN TUNA, swimming fast and so free?
Or choose ZOOPLANKTON, the tiniest to be?
If you lived under the sea, who would YOU be?

Disruption

  The Rabbits' one job was simple, For they were who were in charge Of eating and keeping grass short When it was in danger of getting too large. Each animal in the old forest Would use their own expertise To keep it a nice place to live. This agreement worked well with ease. The Beavers made sure all the trees Never fell and hurt someone below. The Bears would plow walkable paths For the animals to walk in the snow. And the Rabbits, with their eating talents, Made sure all the grass stayed at bay. When it got too long and too full, Smaller animals could not find their way. But one day the others had noticed That the edge of the meadow grew tall. The Rabbits still ate the grass, But did not go near the edges at all. It was curious, thought the Raccoon. And days later, the area unmown Had grown to be even bigger! Deer and Squirrel had agreed when shown. They called together the council To discuss the issue at hand. The area where grass was uneaten Kept expanding to more of the land.

Out Cold

As Winter was approaching Lizard felt chill in the air. Being so cold-blooded She needed to prepare. She wasn't like the mammals- Their body heat came from inside. Instead she was affected By the temperature outside. In Summer she stayed warm With the strong heat of the sun. But she would feel so cold Once the Autumn had begun. Every year she searched For a place to warm her bones. So into a hole she'd go Or find some sun-warmed stones. But Winter was so pretty- There was so much fun to do! She'd maybe learn to ski Or try out new snowshoes. The white blanket that covered All the land and all the trees Was beautiful and peaceful, Despite the low degrees. So this year would be different. She would try a brand new plan. She'd need to find a way To stay warm in the cold land. It was still mid-Autumn, She had time to plot her course And begin her search For a portable heat source. The first idea that came Was to carry a bright torch. She found an old matchstick, But her fing

A Ghost's Lament

You'd think it fun as a ghost, But you have not thought it through. We have more problems than most. These laments I share are so true. I used to love drink and feast! How I loved burgers and fries! But now eating and dining has ceased- I can only enjoy with my eyes. Dressing up to go out was so fun! I'd wear makeup and don a nice blouse! But since this ghost life has begun I found I cannot leave this house! Can you hear the boredom in my voice? I twiddle my thumbs for ages! Even reading is no longer a choice When your fingers pass through the pages. And the new tenants have horrible taste! You should see what they've done with my room! Orange paint slapped on with such haste. And ugh!  You should smell her perfume! And it's I they have tried to evict! With "exorcists" and bundles of sage. Trust me, it's not them I'd have picked! Their awful habits fill me with rage! She picks her nose and he chews too loud, Dirty dishes piling up in the sink. Whoever
