Tongue of a Blue Whale
A blue whale’s tongue
How large can it be?
As supersized as a redwood tree.
No, not that big, the expert said.
But if you get smacked by one, you might become dead
As big as a car?
Bigger I think.
It weighs as much as an elephant.
So away I slink, for a blue whale is in sight, heading for me.
I hide in the corals, hoping me she will not see.
