A Brown Booby landed on a whale boat near Stellwagen Bank,

a remarkable traveler a loooong way from home,

but he’s familiar to me and the kids

because his cousin,the Blue-Footed Booby,

has been drawn by Margot Apple onto most pages in the Sheep in a Ship series.

BFB, with feet of fabulous blue,

do high-stepping struts and bemused fly-bys

watching (along with the reader) as the sheep engage in hapless antics.

Boobies.

PATTY
