Popularity in the Sea

A body that sways

For a ways throughout the maize

Trying not to get eaten

And as small as he may be

Not talking but he can see

That the big ones swim shallow

And he deep

For nothing more than to fall off a cliff, so steep

And when the little guy gives it a shot

To become something he’s not

He’s left there to rot

It’s the big ones’ plot

And when he grows old

He wants his species to be told

About the sharks that scold

Before their life is a mold

Don’t keep watching the clocks

They’ll keep throwing rocks

Pushing you until you can’t take their crap

Thinking they’ve got the map

But someday they’ll see

That the little guy’s the one with the key

To life that is
