Long Reef 27th February

Ode to a Stingray

I saw a little stingray
as I swam over Long Reef

I moved away and thought that
the encounter would be brief

But then the stingray spoke to me
from the bottom of the reef:

"I know we stingrays get bad press,
some despised as a thief

Related to the shark and then,
that incident with Steve

But do not be alarmed,
I will not harm you, Chief

The sting in my tail is small,
It could not cause you grief."

To demonstrate his lack of bite,
he smiled and said "No teef!"
