A poem ‘Shades of Jonah’ on humpback whale carcass at Scarborough

A MONUMENTAL marine mortality, complete with a non-paying, part-time passenger, drifts from Rottnest and makes a perfect 'rendezvous' on our collective doorstep.

It’s almost ‘shades of Jonah’.

Speaking of, my little poet is reporting live from Scarborough.

Whale watching just got easier,

Forget about ‘thar she blows!’

Definitely ain’t no freesia,

On the beach and on the nose.
