The sea horse, sea lion, sea elephant Joined the force for “Ocean’s Most Vigilant” All claimed they’re watchful creatures Wise and keen in their ventures Yet from man’s waste, they weren’t triumphant. They then vowed to help guard ocean’s beauty As sea patrol of good authority Praying, they asked God’s guidance And shield from man’s ignorance… …For all to enjoy sea world’s great bounty*.
*2Corinthians 9:5 ... Make up beforehand your bounty, whereof ye had notice before, that the same might be ready, as a matter of bounty, and not as of covetousness. August 2, 2018 5th place, "Sea Tales Limericks" Poetry Contest Sponsored by Carolyn Devonshire; judged on 8/4/2018.

Beata, your wonderful poem focused on environmental issues that are very important to me. It's beautifully written, but more of a serious poem. I hope you will not be discouraged because this type of poem would have placed higher in a contest for serious poetry. Congratulations, Carolyn
