This is what happens when crazy people write poems

This is a little something MK and I worked on during science today. It’s either titled “The Little Clam Who Dreamed” or “Attack of the Killer Jellyfish.” We’re not really sure yet.

The little clam had a dream,
And in that dream, there was a gleam,
A gleam of hope for a different sea,
A different sea filled with glee,
And no more jellyfish.

And so the little clam began his quest,
He swam long days with little rest,
To find his dream, he went west,
And passed through many a difficult test
Until he found the sea and made a wish.

He made a wish that was slightly strange,
It didn’t seem like a huge change,
Until he took a look towards land
Where giant jellyfish walked on the sand
Instead of swimming with the fish!

The humans there screamed and ran,
Jellyfish didn’t belong among man!
The jellyfish, armed with stingers and bombs,
Attacked the children, dads and moms
Causing a lot of general anguish.

Chaos ensued in the streets,
Sanity took a back seat,
Not a single person was spared,
Those devious jellyfish would not be scared
Of being put on a dish.

Until, one day, a hero came forward,
Armed with a toy sword, he walked shoreward.
The people were joyful; they would be saved!
The boy’s fear of jellyfish would be braved,
And for sure the jellyfish would perish.

He swung his toy sword with all his might,
Sure that he would put up a good fight,
But from behind, he was struck down
And died without making a sound,
Leaving no hero to fight the jellyfish.

The humans continued to fight, but in vain,
The jellyfish kept coming like unending rain,
Until, in the end, every human lay dead,
The beaches strewn with bodies, sand stained red,
The unequal battle had quickly been finished.

The little clam watched from the sea,
Watched as the last few humans tried to flee,
And when everyone was dead, he swam back home,
Back to the unchanged waters to roam.
He got his wish.
