Terrific Terripins

The terripins were having a terrific party. It started at nine and soon everyone was having a jolly good time ! The starfish shone bright all night – and a few seagulls stopped off on a rock, as they flew in mid – flight. The crabs were so drunk, they didn’t walk straight – when they walked sideways, they crashed into the skate. The party was utterly terrific – the octopuses wobbled about and flopped. In fact, the music was so loud, that the ground shook and the dancing never stopped. The terripins prepared a meal – that the shrimps with their feelers came to steal. The shellfish, of course, were selfish and gobbled the lot – they loved the vol – au – vents (though they were rather hot !). The lobsters crawled out of their lobstery pot and ate every one of the breadcrumbs that the terripins had got. The terripins loved to party … they sang till past midnight, loud and hearty. The mermaids swam about – champagne bubbles appeared when they shout. The cod jumped off his fishing rod … the plaice swam about all over the place, then disappeared without a trace. The terripins clattered as the sea water splattered. The party was utterly terrific – Captain C. Waves appeared and did a back flick. Everyone loved his watery trick. The terripins’ terrific party was soon the talk of the seaside – everyone noted that how well the fish were fried ! The cockles danced upon a rock – the electric eel gave everyone a shock. The mussels flexed their muscles and rocked around the clock.
