Sea Ball

There’s going to be a sea ball
Admittance fee nothing at all
You won’t find a night club door
You just leave from the shore

In your scuba gear you go deep
Until upon it you do creep
Then you can take a peek
Come to the sea ball its oh so chic 

The band playing is the Tuna five
They’ll keep music flowing so all can jive
Crabs partner lobsters claw in claw
Sidle across the sea bed floor

Seahorses pirouette, a ballet in full flow
Watch as in and out the coral they go
Octopi waltzing with the Squid
Tentacles wrapped not from view hid

Shellfish shimmy to the beat
Shrimps and Prawns serve up a treat
The Sharks have come they have a smile
They won’t eat anyone for a while

The Starfish spin and stir the sand
The bright coloured fish look really grand
All this take place on a moon bathed reef
Be quick though for it is so brief

Enjoy the sea ball it’s a blast
Time will fly by really fast
Till day light comes and trawlers fish
Hope they don’t catch many that’s my wish

    You have obviously had the pleasure of some deep sea diving. I love the ocean, sea and underwater fantasy. A lovely 'deep' poem well penned.
