A Penguin Loves Its Home

A Penguin Loves Its Home 

By Robinson Tong 

Admiring the white, untouched sleet, 

Crunching under his satisfied feet. 

The taste of fish still in his beak, 

The penguin is no longer weak. 

Now, over the snow he will roam, 

Oh, how a penguin loves its home. 

 

In the seas, the penguin spies, 

A patch of black, like in the skies. 

It scares the fish and stings its nose 

And stains its feathers the color of crows. 

And from the beak flows white foam, 

Oh, how a penguin loves its home. 

 

The penguin finds the sea to be bare, 

And fish, krill and squid very rare. 

His empty stomach aches and growls, 

And, looking at him, a seal scowls. 

The shore piling with Styrofoam, 

Oh, how a penguin loves its home. 

 

The food all gone, the sky gray and black, 

Not a sound, not a crunch or a quack. 

No snow and sleet for penguins to roam. 

How can a penguin love its home, 

With a barren and empty shore, 

When his beloved home is no more? 

Dulce Et Decorum Est: A Documentary on the Horrors of War

Directed by Wilfred Owen, this movie has gotten a record 99.99% on the movie review website rotten tomatoes.com, won an Oscar for Best Picture, and voted “Best Documentary of 2019” by the readers of The Penguinland Post. Though not suitable for children, this movie follows Wilfred Owen in his story fighting in WW1. As seen on the movie poster above, the movie emphasizes on the quotes “Dulce Et Decorum Est” (Owen 1) and “In all my dreams… drowning.” (Owen 1) in Wilfred’s own poem Dulce Et Decorum Est in order to clarify the theme of both of Owen’s creations, how war is not something that is glorified – it is something that haunts you for your life.
