We were glum and gloomy on the flight
As it was soaring over the big blue
Suddenly a flicker of light
Flitted by as we flew
Could we be witnessing a water-walloping whale?
Or perhaps a pair of playful porpoises?
Whatever they are, our memory will not turn stale
But it will grow as old as tortoises
I daresay it is a duo of delighted dolphins
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
