Whale of a Tale


Moby Jane was a big, pink whale,
And was a lookin' for a mate.
Captain Ahab had hoisted sail,
And through the seas did navigate.
The path of the Great Pink did cross
The path of Ahab's ship - Pequod.
Ahab gave his harpoon a toss
Into the mass of Moby's bod.
Like Cupid's arrow, it struck love.
Moby Jane jerked the harpoon line.
Ahab fell from the mast above,
Head over heels into the brine.

Captain Ahab and Moby Jane,
One odd couple down lover's lane.
