  How to be a Whale

by Buddy Denn



Okay youĎve may have seen a whale on TV or at the zoo or something

but to have been a whale? 

You donít know what itís being a whale until youíve been one.

But you have to acquire it first

when you acquire it you can feel the DNA of the whale go into you.

 After acquiring It

you can start to change into the whale

you can even feel the changes happen.

You start to grow

you feel your bones rearranging

your fingers start to disappear.

You start to grow a tail.

The top of your head starts 

to  split apart

and become a blow hole and the next

thing you  know, your new schedule is 

sleep, eat, and play

all this

 when you donít stop the instincts

from taking over.
