Photographer's Note

North Del Mar Beach is one of the very few beaches where pets are allowed, and in winter months they are allowed without a leash. When these canines rush forward in glee and frolic in the water, who can deny they have a 'soul', if 'soul' exists at all!! That leads me to the following:

The Old Gibbon Pardoned

Once there was a wise old gibbon,
Who never thought of afouling Ibn
By complaining of ahYweh's snore
Or by disputing lAhla's score.

But while swinging over Dinders arbor,
She wondered in a monologous whisper,
Whether for a gentlewoman tis proper
To make a haModeman of cuddly Smokey bear.

"My little Smokey teddi-san,"
Swoons Mograri's baby crocodilian!
"What nonsense," Screams a prowling reptilian,
"An effrontery by an outrageous shenanigan!"

So over the Nubian pans,
Remnants of Albahr's ruminants,
Munch on bone dry papyrus,
While Bana Simba calls for a caucus.

"How shall we decide the punishment
For wise old gibbon's intransigence,
For desecrating our pious name
In dirty thoughts, be it only in vain?"

"Fifteen days in jail,"
Cries the caucus gentlemen,
"Five for the thought,
And ten for being women.
While we dont have the power
Of liquid and gas of our brother,
We must put down womanly rancor
Against any horse-riding savior!"

And so the big wise old gibbon
Sits in a dark hot gaol,
While civet and bana simba growl,
In Dinders underbrush prowl,
While baby crocks shed hapless tear
For lonely haModeman teddy bear.

Lets have tea! Suggests the ombudsman,
Under a spacious tent in Omdurman,
With sugar and milk, dear dear,
Lets free the gibbon, enough rancor!

And at last bana simba sighs in satisfaction,
Of high tea and biscuit in adulation,
And nods to the civet in attention
To let gibbon out of incarceration.

Lo and behold folks of gibbonland,
Make no teddy bear a haModeman!
But call any gibbon by that name,
There is no sin in such a flame.
