The Emperor Penguin.

I am an Emperor Penguin
Suited in black and white.
I’m trekking many miles
Across the Antarctic ice.

My journey will take me to a colony
Of others just like me.
I will find a mate and procreate,
And we'll produce ONE precious egg.

I will incubate my offspring. 
My empress will hunt for food;
A fish, a squid, a crab,
They’re all deliciously good! 

If we are fortunate enough to survive
This arduous life,
We could be –
A happy family of three!
