Seal Circus

The seal poises on his pedestal
as light reflects off its dark body
like the night,
Black as ink.

On its nose,
balances a chair.
Make one wrong move
And it will not end up well.

As the lights turn off
and the doors close,
the seal steps off its pedestal
and slides around the hallways.

But when the sunrise comes
He steps back onto his pedestal
and freezes
with the rest.

How did he do that?
Why does he unfreeze at night?
Is he magic?

  1. Cool Oscar! Was it at Willowbank or something because that must have been really impressive! I liked the detail and how you said "make one wrong move and it will not end well. Overall it's a good story;-)
