The pelican

The balance of the belly can
succeed even when standing.
More strenuous when the pelican
sinks shortly before landing.

The beak is full of fish and crab
assembled in a bag.
Filtering food that it could grab
so nothing much would lag.

When pelicans are back on land
they prefer to lie down
and process what they ate – to stand,
and happy not to drown.
