The eldest Oyster's silence

Cover Image

Inspired by "The Walrus and the Carpenter". To the poor oysters! Could their (arguably) unfortunate deaths have been prevented?

The eldest Oyster at the last,
He chose to turn away.
To put down his non-existent foot
The young ones would dismay.
For all he could and all he should
He knew not what to say.


The eldest Oyster till the end
Not a word did he say
Believing that were they good kids
None of them would stray
But since they did because they weren't,
They'd not hear anyway
