The Mysterious Carcass

The fisherman bolted, across the bay,

where lay a blasted shore.

And spied, from windswept distance,

a shape from Neptune’s floor.

A beast some hundred feet in length,

azure-black upon the sand.

Relief, for it was spent of strength.

But none to call to hand.

Aghast, the man returned to town,

spreading word far and wide:

“Upon the beach, beneath the gulls,

a sea monster has died.”

Quick were tongues to relay the tale,

and upon a tractor they relied.

to tow the carcass, which they discovered,

was nought but timber, tarped and tied.
