Let us briefly consider the walrus
with tusks and whiskers on its grizzled face;
A complex creature that is not soulless,
so save your hubris for some other place:
It maintains the coastal ecosystem
with its foraging nature and diet,
from shrimp to seals it will never miss them;
if a food looks good – might as well try it:
Beware the polar bear and killer whale.
They might fight or eat your massive body,
but your size and tusks often make them fail,
and your skin so thick and tough and knotty:
So we hail the walrus on coastal ice
and regard its wisdom as sound advice.
