Thanks, Moby Dick, your fish is divine,
I'm sure it was eager to be caught on your line.
The spuds are delicious, and I know Heppell grown,
I'm sure they are happy to be famously known,
To say nothing about the genial staff
At the place on the beach where you get smiles and a laugh.
But there's more to the story than you see from your seat,
Of the good ship "Moby Dick" as you savour your treat,
There's Captain Ralph and Mate Monika too,
And Tanja and Derek who make up the crew.
So enjoy your fish and your light golden fries,
And know that you're sharing in free enterprise.
They'll wish you "Good-bye" and "Do come again,"
And welcome you back with food to sustain.
This poem was presented to the Moby Dick Restaurant to commemorate its 25th Anniversary, 1975 - 2000. It was written by Art Bates, a long-time resident of White Rock, who, along with his wife Frankie and family, have been dining at Moby Dick for all of those 25 years.
