Exploration the Week of 05/16/2022

Greetings Friends & Families!

Poem of the Week


A Whale is stout about the middle

He is stout about the ends,

& so is all his family

& so are all his friends.

He’s pleased that he’s enormous,

He’s happy he weighs tons,

& so are all his daughters

& so are all his sons.

He eats when he is hungry

Each kind of food he wants,

& so are all his uncles

& so are all his aunts.

He doesn’t mind his blubber,

He doesn’t mind his creases,

& neither do his nephews

& neither do his nieces.

You may find him chubby,

You may find him fat,

But he would disagree with you:

He likes himself like that.
