Battle Below Bass Strait Stretches Sea Credulity

Green kingfisher (Chloroceryle americana) sitt...

Deeper and deeper we did descends
down in the dark where there is the bends
But the Monotonous Monotheist lost its glare
as a ghostly apparition increased the scare
My fear turned to joy as it became clear
the newcomer was nothing to beware
It was the Mild Monotheist swimming our way
hopefully just in time to save the day
The captain at once lost interest in us
as its nemesis did join the rumpus
And then Elle shot out from belowdeck
and grabbed the captain’s slippery neck
They grappled amidst the ocean ripples
like drunken sailors after too many tipples
And then I couldn’t believe my eyes
as a green kingfisher showed enterprise
By flapping its wings under the captain’s arms
making it lose the upper hand and false charms
Then the two monotheists were together as if in sleep
and the mild dragged the monotonous farther deep
We managed to control the ship’s direction
and navigated it north to the sun’s reflection
And when back on the surface I did jump with joy
as the kingfisher shape-shifted into the real mccoy
It was my other ‘alf Green reunited at last
we hugged so hard to the top of the mast.
