The Oyster Cloister
On Washington’s coast, there’s a cloister
That aqua-farms the Olympia oyster;
It’s a hard, wet workday
But at the sisters’ soiree,
Their freshly shucked clams are still moister.
According to Wikipedia: “The Olympia oyster (Ostrea conchaphila) is the native oyster of the Pacific coast of North America from Alaska to Mexico. The name is derived from the important nineteenth-century oyster industry near Olympia, Washington, in Puget Sound.”
