Dear Rat

You mustn't swim till you're six weeks old,
Or your head will be sunk by your heels;

And summer gales and Killer Whales
Are bad for baby seals.
Are bad for baby seals, dear rat,
As bad as bad can be.
But splash and grow strong,

And you can't be wrong,
Child of the Open Sea!

Rudyard Kipling

Some day I will understand the deep meaning of these words of wisdom. In the meantime, I just enjoy them.
