Thought I will find you in the Antarctic
But there you are, in Africa!
All dressed up in your finest.
Black and white is the dress code.
Looking like your Highness!
You waddle with a wiggle.
You cannot fly, yet you can glide.
There’s no ice…
Only a muddy puddle
You really love to slide!
Are you a fish?
Are you a bird?
Perhaps no word.
This is what the Creator preferred.
Inspired by these penguins at the Two Oceans Aquarium in Cape Town, South Africa.
