Blue Whales Tan to Avoid Sunburn

Here is a tale
one of many 
from Nature's archive
 about the Blue Whale
doing what we do
reach out to get more Sun
keeping us healthy and alive
because of its delicate skin
a whale getting a suntan?
go on, really?
Yes it can

"How come you're so smart?"
asked the teacher to a youngster
 "You're barely 5 and know all this by heart.
Are you getting this from the Internet
or maybe watch too much telly?"

"No, no", piped up the youngster.
"My mum is a lawyer
and I had 9 months of pre-school in her belly!"
