I think, in slight extension to the analysis by D. Deubelbeiss, that Bukowski is pointing to the amount of knowledge and expectation that we inherit from social contexts.
To a point, the speaker of the poem is being almost ironic. The child says the ocean isnt pretty and because he never thought of it that way, he instantly agrees. He still isnt forming his own opinion.
We need to form our own opinions about everything as human beings. Questioning all of our pre-loaded social knowledge and expectation is an important part of our lives and understanding.
