WHALE ON THE BEACH
[a verse from Life Is So Hard!]
Life for a whale is so hard on a beach
So hot and so dry with waves out of reach
Neither tail nor flippers are of any use
Frankly, my skin can’t take the abuse
STAY OFF THE BEACH! is what school should teach
Life on the beach is so hard for a whale
But what if I learned to crawl like a snail?
Then I could play with a shovel and pail!
