Frank the Singing Eel: By Alecia and myself.
once upon a time
there was an eel named frank
and frank liked to water skii
but none of the other eels did, They liked to sing!
so Frank would water ski all by himself....and it made him very sad, when he heard the other eels singing
because, you see, Frank coudn't sing
he would try, and would try, and would try; but he just couldn't do it
all the other eels made fun of him!
and laughed and mocked poor Frank
so one day
Frank decided to go on a quest to fin someone ho could help him sing
he left all he had ever kown, and took to the high water
with all his wordly posetion
I just had a brain freeze
He was swimming sadly along, when suddenly....
out of no where popped the amazing singing seal!
the stupendous singing seal
Frank listened from afar for a wjile, the seal's voice was so beautiful!
he started crying at last, because he knew he could never sing as well
but the seal heard him
he swam up beside him and said "what troubles you, little friend?
the eel, with tears in his eyes, answered "I cannot sing!" and burst into floods of salt tears
The seal was deeply touched by this sorrowful show of emotion, and said " do cheer up, I know how to help you sing!"
the eel stopped his crying. " you do!?" he said hopefully. "how?"
"come with me," said the seal
the eel followed the seal closely, afraid if he got to far behind, he would wake up, and find it all a dream.
they swam about a mile, and came to the great coral reef
it was beautiful this time of year. all the little fishies swimming about. Frank was quite awed. his mouth just opened and a song flowed forth into the coral.
He gasped." I DID IT! I SANG!" and frolliced about, singing and dancing
the stupendous singing seal glowed with pleasure at his own success. "now!" he loudly annouced. "go back to your eely friends."
"I will! I will! Sang Frank. "oh glorious day!"
so he swam back home, singing all the way
so happy was he, that he completely forget where he was going, and soon ened up in the big city
huge sharks and rays swam about! So many fish! Frank was frightened!
(are my messages getting through?? they're not showing up for me)
um no I guess
we'll try again
he was so frightened that he was directly into the line of traffic and was run over
ahh much better
yes. it was very sad.
thankfully, a kindly police fish saw, and hated the traffic!
Frank was quickly,, but carefully removed.
and taken to the local hospital
Frank lay in the hospital bed," I wish I had never left home! "he miserably thought
but alas! it was too late. wis has he might, he'd left home, and knew not how to return.......
after many weeks of lying painfully in bed, he....
realized that he shouldn't be sad! He should be happy! So he started to sing!
and he sang, and he sang, and he sang. and all the hospital staff and other patients heard him. they were in awe of his magnificent voice!
the other patients were so happy and awed by his singing, that they jumped up and started to sing along!
soon the whole city started to sing. and the singing spread, and it spread until it reached his home town
where they regretted ever mocking him
soon the whole ocean was singing!
all the humans that passed by, heard the melodios voices of the fish of the sea. they were so awed, that would would stand for days on end to hear the beautiful music.
and the whole world became more peaceful, because of Frank he singing eel.
