Under the waters of the deep blue sea

I swam 'cross waters intrigued as can be

The waves agreed to show me around; tide in my fawn

I had time on my hands, for each day a new flavor

Chasing squid, thumb wrestling with sharks.

Shoal of lantern fish, lit the night so dark

Queen Octopus invited me for the royal lunch

Angel, fish, eels, snakes, oysters - the whole marine bunch

Asked why day by day I was growing thinner?

And promised to feed me right upto dinner

So I ate and ate to my heart's delight

Morning, Afternoon then came night...

We went to the banquet, but, where was the food?

They looked at me, with knives ready. Then I understood...
