Manatee Vanity

From Under the Pages

(A Limerick)

Pier with rain If you look closely, you can see the shy manatee lurking under the water, just above center.

A hysterically self-conscious manatee

had trouble maintaining her sanity;

She swam up to a pier,

where she looked in a mirror:

Self-repugnance gave way to great vanity.

—Dedicated to R.M., in recognition of his great admiration for large marine mammals
