Whale

A whale is stout about the middle,
He is stout about the ends,
& so is all his family
& so are all his friends.

He doesn’t mind his blubber,
He doesn’t mind his creases,
& neither do his nephews
& neither do his nieces.

You may find him chubby,
You may find him fat,
But he would disagree with you:
He likes himself like that.

Whale, Mary Ann Hoberman
