The Whale Showed Up    

I followed the fortunes
Of the Thames Whale
Avidly on Sky TV,
But what they didnít say
Was that that whale was a
Donít know what he was
In his previous life,
But next he turned up
As a Daff Ė I know,
I picked him,
And chucked him in the
Next life, whatíll he be?
Where will he show up?
I donít know Ė maybe as
A bee in Zimbabwe,
And it wonít be long
Before heís floating down
The Zambezi.
