Ode to Boobies

Oh you majestic bird of the high seas,
I’d never heard of you until this documentary,
I perked up when the narrator said “boobies”,
So an ode is owed to your plight and victory.
Dear booby, though you and I may never meet,
Your flight is something to be admired,
When you dive into the waters in a great fleet,
It’s a mesmerizing scene that left me inspired.
Your species depend on clean efficient oceans,
We have to change our ways so you can thrive,
Mankind must understand and make a motion,
To guard the ecosystem and all its wild life.
Our Planet is something we must protect,
So that sea birds have access to great shoals,
It’s a symbiotic relationship we must respect,
Saving the earth should be every person’s goal.
