The Dugong

 

swish, swish, chomp

swish, swish, chomp

 

the gentle dugong

grazed slowly on the grass

fronds waving in the sea

water clear as glass

 

swish, swish, chomp

swish, swish, chomp

 

bristled snout aquiver

surrounded by this lunch

roughened lips are ready

to grasp and crunch and munch

 

swish, swish, chomp

swish, swish, chomp

 

six long minutes pass

tummy full of greens

the timid herbivore

sticks snout above to breathe

 

woooosh

 

“Is that a… ?”

 

“shhhhhhh!”

 

safe back underwater

grass plentiful to chew

this quiet dugong

finds a home in the Ningaloo

 

swish, swish, chomp

swish, swish, chomp
