Imagine if all the krill 
Beneath the ice shelves were dead.

Though the sun won't shine for me
Take pleasure in it's warming glow
There's a future there to see

I wish to eat that silly fish

Roasted, dried, or let to boil.

and heard the "Tickling of the Ivories"?
That is the time when the Monodons
joust each other with their singular parries.

Up the creek
Krill die
Evil. We cannot ride...

The sea is where you’ll find me,
Beneath the ocean blue.

enters a flower graced with golden glow.

A quilted warmth- unbending light,
