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?

  Walking along the steep sea cliff To see the lovely views, The Otter strolled a bit too close- His footing he did lose! He smelled the salty ocean air And flowers on the breeze. He listened to the sweet Bird songs And wind between the leaves. Watching Dolphins jump and play In ocean's foamy swells, He didn't see the dark tree root And over the side he fell. As he dropped down toward the waves, Per Gravity's laws, He saw a branch that stuck way out And grabbed it with his paws. He felt thankful for the chance That this branch did give. But also noted sadly That this was no way to live. As he hung over the cliffs He noted with a frown The new problem that he now faced Was how would he get down? "I've no clue how to live Drifting in winds and gales- What will I eat?  For way up here There are no Clams or Snails!" He swung there dangling in the wind, Regretting his clumsiness. He wished he had been more aware And avoided this whole mess. As time passed, as he ju

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

Rare Bird

The Chickens always chatted All day in the coop. They had the latest info. They knew the hottest scoops. The Geese would sometimes join To hear the latest tales, Along with all the Roosters, Ducks, Turkeys and Quails. The Chickens were, no doubt, The farm's most popular. They ruled all of the acres, Living the life of stars. The Pig and Sheep were jealous. The Goat, he felt it too. They wanted all the fame That the Chickens knew. So Pig said they should try To become the new elite. The Goat and Sheep agreed With a "Maa" and a big bleat. He'd go undercover After learning how they spoke. He'd learn their native tongue And all their inside jokes. Pig would learn their secrets, Know all that they had said. And in no time at all They'd rule the whole farmstead! He'd work with his best friends To sneak into the coop. Then he'd quietly Infiltrate the group! Night and day they listened, And practiced how to speak By watching all their gestures And looking at t
