Poetry: Lore and Leer

This is the story,
Of Leer and Lore.
Who live in the water,
Near the shore.

They party no end,
With family and friend,
Until that sound at the door.

A boat cannot know,
Of the danger below,
To the manatees Lore and Leer.
Please hear my cry,
Please don’t let them die,
We can save them – you and I.
