Never Ever Keep A Whale In Your Pond


Did you ever hear of the tale,
about the Man...who kept in a small pond...a rather huge Whale.

(in my opinion, he should have gone to jail)

In this pond...the Whale would miserably sit,
whilst the Man`s friends...all stared and pocked at it.

Then one night...the rains did heavily drop,
and from the pond...the Whale did hop.

(not much of a hop, more of a twist and a belly flop)

And still the rains...did not cease to stop.

Flooding the land and lifting the house,
up a tree...ran a door mouse.

Then the house started to move and float,
being nudged by the Whale...it was now moving like a speed boat.

To the Ocean...they set sail,
the house being pushed ever faster...by the huge Whale.


Now the man lives...all alone out at sea,

with the Whales now charging Dolphins...a small fish fee,

to see The Hairless Monkey...that belongs...back in a tree.

Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
