A Whale Of A Tale Hits The Trail!

The cat is back once more with another kids book encore. It was actually one of the first ones I wrote, for those who were around years ago who take note. I changed it up a bit. And now, on with it.

A whale of a tale,
Hopefully won't fail,
As two get a ride.
They go out with the tide.

The beach wasn't a beach.
Their home no longer in reach.
Now they go on a trip,
After spotting a big lip.

A whale of a trip.
That deserves a flip.
They see a ton.
Could make some run.

A turtle and a flea.
They have such glee.
They are out and about.
They love being out.

At least for a while,
Swimming a good mile.
Or a mile or more.
But what of their shore?











And there we are. Another book added to our sand bar. I think that makes 54 or so kids books at my show. Nearing 100 works overall. Getting closer at my hall. I'm sure it will come to pass from my ever so rhyming little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

  6. A ride on a whale
    Brings a smile without fail,
    Unless the whale gets loopy
    And your smile gets droopy.

    1. Sailing on a whale
      Sure allows one to hit the trail
      Not sure a flea needs lotion
      Maybe some kind of magic potion
