The Dolphin.


Spot of lunch at the beach yesterday.

Smelt a bit fishy, as is natural by the sea.

A wake of vultures close to the water's edge.

Curious, yet not totally irregular.


Upon further investigation, 

(Unfortunately with no means of recording),

We beheld our first 'close-encounter' with a dolphin,

Sadly beached and bereft of life.


Once beautiful and graceful,

Now bloated and lacking sight.

Pecked by the waiting winged scavengers,

Its blubber, too thick to penetrate and prey on.



A base and lonesome burial ensued,

A Tico dug grave by the shore.

Attended by no friends nor family,

Just two tourists, with I-phones in hand.

Glad you enjoy it!
