The 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,

Where I will procure a mate to procreate,

And she’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!
