Las Vegas Whale Poem by Maria Andres


A Las Vegas whale
Without a tail
Rolled and trundled about

Moist bulging eyes
Hoping to spy
A wench to pirate

There by the bar
Tall and willowy
Deep dark eyes

His bloated bulk
A treasure laden galleon
Set course toward her

The deep dark eyes
Fixed on the whale
And glittered

He flirted and flattered
She towered above him
Smiling, determined his fate

The Las Vegas whale
Without a tail
Never saw the harpoon.
