Jellyfish and Wahoo by Kailani Clifton (Highly Commended)

Jellyfish was getting bored,
He wondered what to do.
So he took a ride,
Upon a Wahoo.

Jellyfish was having fun,
Until he looked and saw.
Wahoo was drifting,
Too close to shore.

Jellyfish was worried so he said,
“Lets get back to sea”.
Wahoo replied and nodded,
“I’ll try if you help me”.

Jellyfish and Wahoo swam,
They got back out to sea.
“See you again” Jellyfish said,
“Thank you for spending time with me”.
