Short Ribs N: Such stuff as dreams are made of

The narwhal, so some people say,
Is the unicorn of the ocean,
And when he does what narwhals do,
He's poetry in motion.
His "tooth", an ivory swordlike tusk,
Is unique and rather "spiffy",
Although it has a tendency
To make his love life "iffy".
The bigger ones are thought to be
More sexually prolific,
But that's the stuff of fantasy,
So let's not get more specific.
Norbert Narwhal's girlfriend says
That even though she's flattered,
She likes him for his intellect,
His size has never mattered.
