Deep Sea Countdown

Deep Sea Countdown

Ten deep sea turtles swimming in a line;
One laid an egg and then there were nine.

Nine naughty narwhals feeling just great,
Till one swallowed seaweed and then there were eight.

Eight electric eels, one named Kevin,
Shocked himself and then there were seven.

Seven shouting seahorse galloped just for kicks;
One lost his way and then there were six.

Six sassy shrimp were feeling glad to be alive;
One was eaten by a shark and then there were five.

Five flying fish in the air did soar;
One bumped into a gull and then there were four.

Four ugly foxfish happy in the sea;
One looked in the mirror and then there were three.

Three blue fin tuna, not knowing what to do;
One got caught in a net and then there were two.

Two cold trout being warmed by the sun;
One stayed out to long and then there was one.

One eight-legged octopus juggling for fun,
Got hit in the head and then there was none.
