THE MIGHTY MONSTER

By Josie Whitehead

Mighty Monster (The)

The sea’s a mighty monster 
   Who likes roaming round our globe.
He carries fish and coral reefs
   Inside his watery robe.

Sometimes he slumbers in the sun –
    Perhaps you’ll hear him snore -
But listen out, for when he’s cross,
    His voice you can’t ignore.

His angry waves crash on the beach;
    His hands thrash out in vain.
As if to join the irate scene,
   The clouds send down their rain.

The wind joins in the argument
    And ships are tossed about.
Then lightning streaks across the sky
    And thunder starts to shout.

At times this monster’s gentle
   And you’d think it wasn’t true
That he had been so furious
     Now all is calm and blue.
