Have you hugged your whale today?
Willing a Whale
Somebody once told me if I hugged a whale
The oceans would calm and the sea beasts prevail
But my arms were too short and I knew I would fail
Even when I tried it down by his tail
So using a technique I learned in Madrid
Forehead to forehead I hugged with my Id
That was the weirdest thing I ever did
The whale was surprised melding minds with a kid
I thought ‘Do you like me?’ The whale pictured, ‘Yes,’
and showed me where Blackbeard had buried a chest
‘Now, do run along boy, I’m needing of rest’
And that’s when I hugged him for being the best
That was the last time I saw Mr. Whale
To this day, nobody believes in this tale
But sure as a sunset, the sea did prevail
So call it a fluke and I’ll call it his tail
