Oh dear Lord

I’m tired and I’m spent

that earth is a whale

is wholly evident

with its corrosive stink

I’m sitting with dead fish

getting boils from the bile

digesting ocean’s dish

and not feeling very grateful

although I was to jump

where all these heavy trials

oceans could have sunk

hardships don’t seem merciful

nor sufferings too kind

when earth is a whale

and I’ve too small a pail

to dump the ocean behind!
