My Adventures In The Sea
On the sandy beach I lay,
When the waves came to take me away.
For an adventure the waves took me,
Into the vast depths of the deep sea.
Lost among the fishes so gay,
I felt like I was there to stay.
Fishes moving here and there,
Sea-creatures swimming everywhere.
Large sharks looking for prey,
Little fishes swimming away.
And I saw (you won't believe this) ,
About a hundred octopus.
As I wandered here and there,
A pair of eyes at me did stare.
A giant creature was going to eat me up,
I would be gone in half a gulp!
"Oh God! " I cried. "For Heaven's sake,
I don't want to end up on a Blue Whale's plate! "
The crime that I had committed to it woe betide,
That had landed me inside a whale's inside.
But I was thin and I was wiry,
This helped save me from this adventure so ghastly.
I was saved, I was out,
I escaped through the Blue Whale's spout!
The foamy waves now took me,
To the safe coast of the blue sea.
I hope now that people like me,
Will think twice before going to sea.
