A chapter in the book The Walrus and the Starfish

The Starfish Answers

by damommy

 
The Walrus and the Starfish talked
as they strolled ‘cross the sand,
and while they talked, the two friends walked
together hand-in-hand.
 
The Starfish said, “Oh, Whiskered One,
I’ve pondered things you thought,
and still I haven’t found as yet
the answers that you sought.
 
“I think the stars hang high in sky
because they’re glued to stay,
and pebbles sink to ocean floor
because a lot they weigh.
 
“Whyever would a pig need wings?
A silly notion, that.
Where would we find some big enough
to carry all that fat?
 
“I have no thoughts on big balloons,
or why a hoof or toe.
So many things in this great world
that we will never know.
 
“Let’s focus on our friendship, and
I think you soon will see,
for us, the world’s a happy place
when there’s a you and me.”
