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?

Prickly

The Hedgehog felt a little down. Lonely, he felt quite sad. Such a friendly and outgoing guy, But hugs he never had.
By nature, he was warm-hearted, And loved to talk and chat. But his quills were sharp, so friends stayed far. He couldn't blame them for that.
On a walk he saw the Rabbit, Teary and wet-eyed. Rabbit explained he stubbed his toe. "It hurts so much!" he cried.
Hedgehog gave his sympathies, And thought a hug would help. But as his spikes stuck Rabbit, He shouted, "Ouch!" and yelped.
Rabbit frowned and limped away. Hedgehog then did lament,  "My aim was to give comfort- Pain was never my intent."
He could not play with his mates, Not Touch Football nor Tag, Red Rover, Leapfrog, or Hand Clap. And not Capture the Flag.
They didn't want to leave him out. They did like him so much. But what else could they do When his body hurt to touch?


So Hedgehog would walk by himself, Although he was well liked. He'd breathe fresh air, pick flowers…

Identity Crisis

Platypus was in crisis What herself she should be called. Due to many guises, In many classes she did fall.
The Platypus scratched her head,  She always thought she knew. But she didn't have an answer When asked, "What are you?"
"A Platypus, of course," she laughed. But Muskrat then had said, "But what exactly does that mean?" And she cocked her head.
"What does it mean?  What am I?" And now it plagued her so. If she couldn't tell what she was Maybe someone else would know?
She found the Duck and waddled up- "Know what a Platypus may be? I'm at a loss and thought you might Have more a clue than me."
Duck looked at her and smiled wide- "A kind of duck, I'm sure! You lay eggs and have a bill! You needn't wonder more!"
Platypus was glad at first. But it did not take too long Until she started to think and feel Duck was very wrong.
"I have a bill and lay eggs, This is very true, But don't have feathe…

Like Ducks to Water

Today was the day, fresh out of the nest. The babies would put their skills to the test. Mama led first, assuming they'd follow Her to the lake, near them in the hollow.
She leapt out of the nest, and turned to her brood, "We learn swimming today!" as they finished  their food. They looked at Mom, questions in their eyes, Though this should not have come as a surprise.
"Do we have to swim?" "The nest feels so snug!" "Up close to each other it's easy to hug!" "Why go to lake, so cold and so wet? "To be damp and chilly until the sun sets?"
Mama Duck rolled her eyes, and then she had said, "Swimming's what we do, it's why Duck  feet are webbed! Our feathers protect us from chilly waters. So come now, all of my sons and my daughters."
Reluctant, the Chicks filed out of the nest  With less excitement than Mom would  have guessed. They left, walking with her, with sad reactions, But then, became scattered, ove…
