Ode to the walrus

Ode to the walrus

dweller of ice and water

bringer of death to little tuxedo squawkers

saber tooth of the ocean

bull of the ice caps


so proud are thee as you blunder about

so majestic in your fatty husk

oblivious to thy melting home

curious you are of life beyond poles


come now oh beast of great

to cities where you can propagate

find new havens to hang your tusks

and bow to your king wampa

you know you must
