Swimming With Sharks


She came to some grief on a barrier reef
While snorkeling with fishies and fry
When up from the dark rose a hammerhead shark
That nipped off a piece of her thigh

Said the girl to the beast, “How dare you to feast
On my tushie, how cheeky, what nerve”
Said the shark, “Back on land you may be quite grand
But out here, you’re another hors d’oeuvre.”
