Creeping through the drainpipes, escaping up into the light
They are coming to take over, they are sick of endless night!
They are amazed by all the colours and blinded by the sun
They have discovered wine and pencils … Oh! they are having fun.
The yellow of the flowers attracts like bees to a honeypot
They can’t believe how tall the trees are, they want to climb them but so far they have not!
Blue skies seem to please them, could it remind them of their former home.
When they had lived in the sea , safe , in the time before they had to roam.
It was better when they roamed the seas we knew where we were then
Before we spoiled everything . It was as it should be Ying and Yang a perfect Zen.
It is not the same now, everything has changed. It was our own fault
We pushed them all too far and now nothing is the same. Sadly now its too late to call a halt.
Could we get them back in the sea again , I really don’t think so
I think we have done enough damage ………….. and it is time for us to go.
