I like coral reefs
But I prefer sea urchins cooked raw
I don’t mind Chinese chicken soup suey
Forget about the budget lines
And the semester long sessions.
I don’t cherish stagnant creeks
They creak, smell and refuse to thaw
So once the Lord Mayor says his wife is Sue
Call up the journalist Winsome Hines
And fetch the priest for the final intercession.
