I lie, abandoned, on the beach.
My watery home I cannot reach.
My former owner set me free.
He has no further need of me.

I have no tenant, nor any friend.
Is this how I am doomed to end?
An empty, useless, lonely stray.
Without the means to move or play.

But wait! I hear a strange, new sound.
A creature moving across the ground.
I sense him, as he checks me out.
Looking for food, I have no doubt.

But in another minute or less,
This creature's purpose I can guess.
He needs a home. A larger place.
His need becomes my saving grace.

So remember, when you are down and out.
On a garbage heap, you have no doubt.
Don't give up hope, for that's a sin.
You may be in Nature's recycling bin.

As I get used to my life on land,
With my new tenant and his band.
I ask you all to think of me,
And try to guess just what I be.

What Next?
