FLOTSAM DAY SPECIAL
The Flotsam Spin
Roll up, roll up,
Ladies and gents,
For a wonderful wheel,
With stupendous events!
My job is quite simple,
And I never get rest,
But out of all the games,
You'll find we're the best.
No other pastime,
Is quite up to par --
Who plays Mini Golf
With lava and tar?
You'll surely agree,
Is far less superior,
Than the Wheel of Mediocrity.
So cheer me up,
And take a spin!
You're bound to win.
One day a young Flotsam came and told me
All about swimming in the deep blue sea,
About seeing the light on the water glisten --
That's when I sat down to listen.
"A little ripple became a wave,
The cool water's touch is what you'd crave,
On the sandy beach some Flotsams lay,
Where the sun would shine on them all day.
The Flotsams could do loop-de-loops,
And dive and even jump through hoops!
To see these tricks, oh so exquisite,
Just go for a swim, you can't miss it!
Today we celebrate Flotsam Day,
And all the Flotsams cheer and play!"
As I looked out towards the sea,
I saw more Flotsams watching me.
They beckoned me to join them all!
And I did, as I recall.
So why don't you come and join me?
Let's play with the Flotsams in the sea!
Flotsam Day! Oh, Flotsam Day!
The mere name jolts a light to the heart,
For when it comes to these sweet little pets,
One doesn't know where to start!
The day began
With a call to the sea,
And Flotsams gathered round,
Each filled with glee!
So they leapt in the water
With a great roaring clash,
Before proceeding to frolic
In the waves and splash!
Tiny tails went one way,
Bright in the sun,
Before up sprang the heads;
My, they were having fun!
There were swimming events,
And basking in the sand,
And some Flotsams ate seaweed,
Strand after strand!
But then, the cry was carried --
What was going wrong?
A Flotsam was being dragged
By the tide, fast and strong!
There were screams of terror,
Quiverings of fear...
What was going to happen
To the Flotsam sinking here?
Suddenly, a yell to the rescue!
Going streaking past,
An Island Flotsam burst out to his friend,
Saving him at last!
There are cheers of delight;
"Island has saved the day!"
And he is presently awarded
With a pink coral bouquet.
The day is growing shorter,
And the sun begins to fall...
But that doesn't mean
There can't be one last game for them all!
They rig up a net, grab a ball,
And begin to play,
And the beach volleyball game
Can be heard from the bay!
But, as everything grows to an end,
So did the Flotsam Day,
Yet, as it was so great and fun,
Its memories will always stay!
Besides, next year will be
Another Flotsam day to reach...
So, pack up those goggles, pile up those towels,
And head down to the beach!
Flotsam Day, oh Flotsam Day,
How joyous it will be!
With new toys, games, and items --
Oh, what a sight to see!
Maybe with a new paint brush color
Or a brand new look,
Could be a plushie or a gift...
Maybe a hard-covered book!
We could adopt a Flotsam,
Make it smile once more!
Cheer on Flotsam Day!
Make our spirits soar!
Paint one fire, Christmas, or Faerie,
Paint one rainbow or gold!
Buy their paint brush at the auctions,
Make the Auctioneer shout, "SOLD!"
Now on Flotsam Day
With expectations oh so high,
We'll ask for many things,
We will smile by and by!
One thing for certain we'll wish
Is for happiness across the land,
And that glorious Flotsam Day
Will run smoothly, just as planned!
The Flotsams are noble and yet they are shrewd,
They can be polite and also crude.
They all are attractive and eat up food,
But mostly are noble and yet they are shrewd.
Red, green, or yellow, or sometimes not,
Names from "Joe" to "Franklamorot",
Two flippers, a tail, an eye like a dot,
Blue, and painted, and then sometimes not.
One little spike upon its head,
If it attacked you, you would be dead.
Sharp and pointy it causes dread,
The thin little spike atop its head.
Then there's the fin that's on the top,
It stands up straight and doesn't flop.
Behind the spike that can chop,
Is the fin that that is on top.
Flotsams are cute and very nice,
Unless you are mean to them once or twice.
Confuse them with Jetsams,
Their spike might slice,
But mostly Flotsams are cute and nice.
If you do not have four pets yet,
Consider a Flotsam for your pet!
They like to live where it is wet,
If you don't have a Flotsam yet!
