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
when you donít stop the instincts
from taking over.
