The Tales of Whales
By Emily Keith
I wonder what a whale would say
If you met him face to face.
Things like “Hello, little girl” or “Yum! You look fish sandwich.”
I would hope it be the first one though.
Would he tell me stories about fish, squid or mermaids
Or would he simply make that weird noise whales make on Animal Planet?
Maybe whales don’t tell tales at all.
Maybe the only tales whales have are on their tushies.
