Starfish, strange and beautiful,
Washed up along the Shore,
Mermaid magical in concept,
Soft symmetry and form.
I’ve often thought about these
Quirky creatures of the deep –
What are their otherworldy thoughts?
I wonder if they sleep?
I stood admiring at this creature,
Maybe God’s most perfect plan –
But hang on a minute….. Yuk!
Have you seen them eat a clam?
