Leviathan

Smudge on the horizon?

Spume of a whale!

Fluttering flags?

The flukes of his tail!

A  cheerful powerhouse,

He traverses with ease

The wilderness of water–

This lord of the seas.

The largest ever mammal

To evolve on this earth,

But which wicked fairy

Attended his birth?

Who was it, so steeped in infamy,

To zap him with this double-whammy:-

Fear of his crushing bulk if he’s aground–

And -on a too-long dive, fear of being drowned!
