OCEAN'S MOST VIGILANT
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.
