Under the Sea
“I usually solve problems by letting them
devour me.”--Franz Kafka.
Penny Plankton could not swim against
Sam Sardine gobbled up Penny and her pals.
Sam smiled at his good fortune.
Bradford Bass munched up Sam easily, but
Bradford was still hungry.
Then Timothy Tuna swallowed Bradford whole.
Timothy was happy with his feast.
Sidney Seal scarfed up Timothy in three bites.
Sidney giggled because of his wonderful lunch.
Olivia Orca devoured Sidney while he slept.
Olivia shared her meal with her two calves.
Walter Gray Whale ate up Olivia in one big bite.
Walter felt like the Sultan of the Sea,
for he was the biggest creature under the waves.
Nothing was big enough to eat him.
Mister Morton was a professional whaler,
and he harpooned Walter last week.
All these events may seem cruel or sad,
but this is Nature’s Way,
and we cannot change it.
