Tale of the Green Whale
You've heard of the Blue Whale, the Humpback, the Orca,
And those tiny whales off the coast of Majorca.
The Pilot, the Pygmy, the Beaked, the Beluga,
The Gray and the Sperm and less-know Strap-Toothed-a.
But out of the whales (with baleens and without)
You never once met the Green Whale, I've no doubt.
A wonderful creature, the whale who is green
For he has the power to make oceans clean.
He purifies seas with a slap of his fin,
Neutralizes pollutants that people dump in.
He makes special reefs for all the ocean fishes
And creates kelp forests with splashes and splishes.
He banishes oil; he can un-do red tide.
How does he do it? Well... that's classified.
Alas, the Green Whales lives in imagination
But if he were real, there'd be cause for elation.
Yes, if he existed, how great it would be
For all of the creatures who live in the sea.
Your own Green Whale can be found here.
