The Catch of the Year

The bigger the hole, the bigger the fish,
The better the hope, the better the wish,
That's not a fish, that's a whale,
Much too big a fish to scale,
But one thing for sure, get a bigger dish.

The Mermaids Ball .

The  mermaids  ball  music  still  lingers

Swordfish  Fred  and his shoal  of  sweet singers

Had  a  whale  of  a  time

On  the octopus  slime

Caressed  by  their  salty  fish-fingers

Fish Tail

A fat bluefin tuna down deep
Was fished out one night when asleep
He was looking quite pale
Had escaped a big whale
To be Sushi for one Meryl Streep

Whale Watching

Tripped over sand packed in a pail
Watching ocean ships set sail
Fell and hurt my pride
Not believing what I spied
Top hat and coat being worn by a whale

Wayne the Whale

There once was a whale named Wayne the Whale,
In his fin there was a rusty nail,
Then he met the crab named George,
Who got the nail out of it's gorge,
Wayne the Whale left with a flip of his tail.

Blimp's Diet

There’s a plump man they call The Blimp
Who recently started to limp
Though each day without fail
He’d eat a whole whale
So I proposed that he switch to shrimp

Life With Trump Xiv

Tarzan could yodel with a beat
A whale can sing melodies sweet
But Donald is mean
His mouthpiece the machine 
That disseminates hate with a tweet

Gehry and the Whale

with an architect known as Gehry
his titanium sails were so scary
if viewed by a whale
that would likely entail
a blow then a massive Hail Mary.

Little Surfer

once a surfer named ava

annoyed fish with each wava

a whale came around

and knocked her aground

a lesson in behava.

Trump wanted to be a sperm whale
But Bill Cosby kept flipping him tail
Although both are deranged
The climate has changed
Now trans genders send them Email

A Mermaid's Tail

Davy Jones was clearly immoral
When he ruled all sex must be oral
But one mermaid's tail
Excited a whale
And his fluke just shattered the coral!

Blue Whale Farts

Blue whale fart bubbles are big enough to swallow a horse Can't imagine how they know, must have an underwater source Maybe a smartass starfish With a human-like gift Thinks he's world-famous and looks great in fish shorts

In the Belly of a Whale


There was a young man named Jonah
Who thought that he was a goner
But he lived to tell
How a huge grey whale
Had certainly pulled a boner

If a fresh fish I can possibly bake 
I will make it as sweet as a cake
some for you while we sail 
on water free of whale 
don't worry, alot of it I will make!

Jealous Ship

Ahoy! A seafarer's tale
About a massive ship, not a whale,
   She was always sound
   Never ran aground
Jealous of that whale, she had screws, not tail

Tale of a Tail

My craziest time under water
was diving with Godzilla's daughter -
she spotted a whale
and gnawed at its tail,
and ruined the snorkel I'd bought 'er.

Meat Pete the Pirate

I once knew a pirate named Pete
There's nothing that he wouldn't eat
He once swallowed a whale
But then choked on the tail
And now he himself is dead meat

His Straw Sank To the Bottom

His straw sank to the bottom

Hey babe you need a straw to stir your drinks
Beautiful pickup line hon, what do you thinks
I think your blue calm ocean
Needs some whirling motion
I see a whale curing your blues as it sinks

Between Rock and a Hard Place

Between Rock and A Hard Place

Johan you want to avoid and duck,
Who had been bringer of bad luck;
Whale of a deal,
And real steel;
Between rock and hard place are stuck.

Am interested in starting A "Jonah With Whale"
Poetry series.

Aboard the Pequod

I would tell you a sea-farer's sad tale
About a captain who chased a white whale
To the depths he condemned
All but one of his men
And alas for my name isn't Ishmael

Ocean Breeze

There once was a blue whale who had the flu
He went to the doc and asked what to do --
   Doc replied, "Just don't sneeze
   You'll create such a breeze --
My stethoscope won't detect your achoo."

Arty Stuff No 6

Arty stuff No 6

That renaissance-ish artist Raphael,
Was sketching while sat in a gale,
A gust took his pad
Which made him quite sad,
As his subject was Jonahs'  great whale!

When Jonah Awoke

When Jonah Awoke

Before going to sleep his feet he did soak;
Then Jonah decided he would tell a joke;
Could hardly believe,
Dream would receive;
Was swallowed by a whale when he awoke.

No New Water

There's no new water on earth it's all been recycled That thought just came to me in a flash, my mind did spiral It's mind-blowing It's thought-provoking Makes me think about all the whale poop quite vile
