The Whale and the Lobster

By Metaphorest

A bit of punnery to lighten the mood :) I spose it's kinda Lewis Carroll-ish in a poor second cousin sort of a way so I'll contribute it to the Alice collab too!

“I’m gonna jump!” the lobster said
“And it is all your fault”
And when I’m dead,
they’ll crack my head
and season me with salt

"You crusty fool"
The whale replied
"I never said a word"
"So chill, sir fish
don't be shellfish"
"Say what?"
the lobster grrr-ed.

"I am fed up of your punnage,
of your mockery and japes
So shut your hole!
You blubbered vole!
or I'll pincer your face!

"I was codding" wails the blue whale
Just some friendly lingual frolics!
But then you vent,
say twas ill-meant
Well, that's a load of pollocks!"

"He's off again" the lobster cried
"And I can hardly bear it
If I were young
I'd grip your tongue
and from your mouth I'd tear it!"

"Come on now friend
No need to carp
You're making so much noise
I'd stop if I could
Without jokes I'm no good
See the pursuit of puns gives me porpoise"
