Under the Sea

Can fish tears be seen?
Do their salty drops add to the depth of waters?
Do they cry for those

who don’t show up for school?
Or Because the water is too cold?
Or too warm.
Do they weep from hunger?
Or loss?
Like mermaids
Do they dream of sandy shores?

I think under the sea
would actually be the molten core of lava
on which the earth rests
Perhaps that is why fish cry.

perhaps the ocean is tears. Tears

of the thousands and thousands

Under the Sea
Song by Alan Menken, Samuel E. Wright
Lyrics
The seaweed is always greener
In somebody else’s lake
You dream about going up there
But that is a big mistake
Just look at the world around you
Right here on the ocean floor
Such wonderful things surround you
What more is you lookin’ for?
