All creatures on board the Godolphin Airline - Poem

We were glum and gloomy on the flight

As it was soaring over the big blue

Suddenly a flicker of light

More likely they are mammals than some UFO

These buoyant beings certainly brighten our cabins

And set our sullen spirits aglow

as cheerful as these creatures are

We still should tread oceans with care

although our plane is up so far

it still clogs their lungs with dirty air
