Penguin Jamboree
by Eternum 1

I heard a tale from a whale
who swam the seven seas
Of all the places he would sail
he favored one especially

In southern lands
on icy floors as far as you can see
The fiddlers jam and call the clans
to the penguin jamboree

You can join and sit a spell
as they glide so merrily
As walruses hum and shake their jowls
with oboes on their knees

There's silver eyed fishy pie
and frozen shrimp ice cream
While ladies fan their beaks with clams
the men all stand and preen

The maestro tall enters the hall
to conduct the symphony
The couples race to take their place
to begin the night's soiree

He opens with the waddlers waltz
in three step harmony
Ladies blush when the music halts
at feathers fallen free

The music plays all night long
six months to you and me
Each night some leave to have a fling
above the frozen sea

Til pink light runs like chewing gum
in the dawn so long unseen
And underneath each Penguin bum
An egg lies warm and serene

ET - This is absolutely magical! Reminds me of the old British tales. It's almost flawless. And I do not flatter. (Flatter is only two letters from shatter.)

Anyone can be passionate, but it takes real lovers to be silly.
