The Penguin Dilemma

The Penguin Dilemma

A Poem by Evan Deubner

Approaching Philosophy from a birds eye view.

Homeless birds dressed to impress
A party that doesn't exist
Penguins are ridiculous
Isolated eaters of fish

Ubiquitous soldiers of nowhere
Silly little creatures of habit
Huddled up gently together
And covered up in layers of feather

Far, far, far down south
Is where the Emperor Penguins live
Ode to the Emperor Penguin
May your harvest of fish be big

North of the Equator
The Galapagos Penguin lives
Ode to Galapagos Penguins
May your feathers be shiny and warm

Then there's the Little Penguin
Smallest of the penguins by far
Ode to the Little Penguin
May your journey through life be large

Now here's the Adelie Penguin
Snappiest dresser I know
Ode to the Adelie Penguin
May your belly slide swift in the snow

Here comes the King Penguin
Not quite an Emperor yet
Ode to the King Penguin
May the crown weigh light upon your soul
