Said a seagull to a penguin
As he was passing by,
"Ye penguins are peculiar birds,
You cannot even fly."
"You are so slow and awkward,
And just waddles 'round each day;
And where you find enough to eat
Is more than I can say."
"A seagull is a nobler bird
I know you will agree;
With wings unfurled I span the world
To lands you'll never see."
"Said the penguin to the seagull,
You may be right my friend,
But there never was a penguin yet
Who on a seagull did depend."
"We may be clumsy, slow of wit,
We may look cross or glum,
But if we thrive where you would starve,
That proves we're not so dumb."
"Some seagulls has a lot to learn,
And brag and boast each day;
But penguins mind their business, and
Just live their simple way."
