I. My Lovely Manatee

I dreamed myself a dugong swimming in the calm sea
Where I fell in love there with a lovely manatee
We were very happy and we always got along
That is until she took up with a longer dugong

Not to be long enough is tough alone in the rough sea
Nor did I choose to lose my love my lovely manatee

II. When Dugongs Do It

Oh the humanity of a huge manatee
Digging a big long dugong in the swim
Swimming to her as it were as to him
Meeting a manatee halfway wholeheartedly

Too long since we had a manatee around
The house a dugong lost but not yet found

When dugongs do it and manatees mate
Then again is when it is never too late
When dugongs do it then we can do it too
I can be a manatee again and so can you

Splashing through the river flashing to the sea
Dugong you along with manatee me

III. Because He Was a Manatee

A manatee got mad at me
Because I smoked his grass
His vanity offended thus he kicked my ass

But gently though because he was a manatee

IV. Man and Manatee

As I could not eat
The meat of a man
The flesh of a big long dugong
Would be too strong
For me

Too strong familiarity
Wrong all along
Nor could I eat
Manatee meat

Poor me
In the breadline
Not eating the meat
But doing fine
Though life is short if not for long

Where the meat is beaten and eaten
Our condition though fatal not serious
But for manatee or man mysterious
As it can be as we can see

Man and manatee

There is such sense in this senselessness. I feel solid connectivity with your dugong (whatever that is) and your manatee. ~~ Magic verse ** ~~ Diana

Love ya!
