The Oyster

There once was an oyster
whose story I tell,
who found that some sand
had got into his shell.
It was only a grain,
but it gave him great pain.
For oysters have feelings
although they’re so plain.

Now, did he berate
the harsh workings of fate
that had brought him
to such a deplorable state?
Did he curse at the government,
cry for election,
and claim that the sea should
have given him protection?

No he said to himself,
as he lay on a shell,
“since I cannot remove it,
i shall try to improve it”.
Now the years have rolled around,
as the years always do,
and he came to his ultimate
destiny – stew.
And the small grain of sand
that had bothered him so
was a beautiful pearl
all richly aglow.

Now the tale has a moral;
for isn’t it grand
what an oyster can do
with a morsel of sand?
What couldn’t we do,
if we’d only begin,
with some of the things
that get under our skin?
