"Oyster Christmas Story" by John Bacon (December 15, 2011)

It was the week before Christmas
And on Fishing Creek
100,000 oysters 
Were ready for a long winter sleep
When up on the trail
There arose such a clatter
The Saturday morning team
With their good natured chatter
But what to their wondering ears did they hear
The water monitors in their cold weather gear
Thatís Coral and David, Kathy and Terry
Amenda and Dennis, Melanie and Larry
They dip in their bucket
And lower the Secchi
Making their measurements 
To record for posterity
Thats DO, pH and Salinity 
and of course
Solids, Temperature, Time and Turbidity
When they are finished
They packed up their gear 
And trudged down the trail
The oysters could hear them 
Saying see you next year
