I would've perhaps liked to swim in you O' sea
only if sharks and octopi didn't inhabit thee
Perhaps I would've swum and dived deeper in glee
if piranhas and sting rays couldn't attack me!
I would've gone far a' seafaring
with a daredevil like daring
if jellyfish in seas weren't thriving
I would've loved to go scuba-diving
But since at sea such dangers lurk
I shan't be shark chow in marine murk!
So I'm content with reading, watching aquatic seafaring tales
of olden ships, wrecked vessels, treasure troves and blue whales
But on a sandy beach I can sit all day
The sight of water so refreshing I must say
I've a feeling O' God you like water too
for most of the earth you covered in water true
So in the ebbing tide salt water I'm content just splashing my feet
A rare starfish, crabs and seaweed to meet
Perhaps if I'd been brave like my sister I would've braved the depths of the ocean
for she's scared of nothing, not bats or swordfish, except for 'roaches in flying motion.
