Sylvia the large grey seal
is down-in-the-dumps because she feels
the other seals are being mean
because she’s not remotely lean.
Across the stones and beach she wobbles
heaving over the pebbly bobbles
But when she makes it to the water
she can swim just like she oughta.
She knows the others are just jealous
for learning to fish they aren’t so zealous
No, she’s been studying carefully
and catches the most to eat for tea.
So that’s the reason, you’ll surmise
that Syvia’s waist is oversized.
Here come the animals!
