I am a grey seal pup of Russian descent. I was born in Siberia and lived in a small seal colony on a river island downstream of a large industrial city. My friends and I enjoyed sabotaging the factories and polluting the river, though it didn't go down too well with our elders (or the humans) . One day we sabotaged the hydroelectric dam. Well, one thing led to another, and the colony (and most of the town) got washed away. My family moved to Leningrad (now St. Petersburg) , one of the nicest cities in the world. I'm very fond of Russia and miss it a lot.
I now live in the Farne Islands with a very kind human and my pet urchin. I love my urchin. I enjoy writing poems about my life, my famous ancestors, and my friends.
My human owner says that seals are twits, idiots, nincompoops. I hope my poetry can demonstrate otherwise.
