Poem of the Day

That seal in New Zealand

 

That seal in New Zealand

Decided to stay

All the others seals

they went away

 

Time to migrate

And swim a long lap

That seal in New Zealand

Took a long nap

 

That seal in New Zealand

Marina full of sun

Thought an extended stay

Was better fun

 

No sharing of fish

All wharf space she owns

That seal in New Zealand

Has found a new home

 

She’s now very famous

On the news worldwide

That seal in New Zealand

Takes it all in her stride

 

Smiling and grunting

A bit of a flap

That seal in New Zealand

Got a very good rap

 

She rolled for the camera

300 kilos of lard

A grin for the lens

Isn’t too hard

 

Named “Owha” by locals

She has stayed a year

Missing her friends

No! Not a tear

 

That seal in New Zealand

Intends to stay

Loves her new country

In the sun she will lay
