i'm living as a penguin

near an overbearing sea
i ponder as i'm freezing
"what the hell is wrong with me ?"
.
we are decked out in tuxedos
prim and formal is our norm
with lots of cool accessories
to keep us nice and warm
.
we're the white notes and the black notes
stuffed inside an arctic song
we'll form a crazy conga line
and shuffle right along
.
but yet, i'm multicolored
though it's lying deep within
and you could not perceive it
merely looking at my skin
.
we walk along an icy coast
bereft of shoes and socks
but my idea of ice
would be some vodka on the rocks
.
you see a lot of blackness
in a penguin's beady eyes
but if you were to gaze in mine
you'd notice i was wise
.
in my mind, i'm always soaring
looking for that knowledge tree
for i have not embraced at all
this penguinosity
