Whales and coffee

The whale said to me
‘_you should hop on on my back
I’ll take you to sea and we’ll never look back_’

I said to the whale
‘-very tempting that is
I’d like to and all, but you see how it is-’

He just shook his head
in dismay and disgust he said
’_What’s the matter, is it me you don’t trust_’

I looked down at my feet
too shy now to answer
I’d upset my friend and I should’ve known better

how do you tell leviathan your friend
you felt you would drown if you went
on a swim to the end of the end

the whale flicked his tail
which turned all the currents
he smiled with one eye, then he winked with the other

‘_O I know you can’t come now and never look back
I was pulling your leg, I was having a lend_’

O were you really’ we high fived each other
shall we meet here tomorrow for coffee my brother
