The Great Auk - Poem by Sebastian Seal
A magnificent seabird came,
He was a giant with mighty squawk.
The Great Auk lived up to his name,
He was great and said 'auk'.
The Great Auk was not too bright,
He had wings but could never flap.
They were good for a fight but not for flight,
So he used them to give seals a slap.
Men rounded him up in a trice,
They caught him for his feathers,
They caught him for his lice,
They caught him in all weathers.
So the Great Auk became extinct.
All because he couldn't fly.
Or maybe because he stinked.
To the Great Auk I say 'bye-bye'.
