A Shark Week poem: Your Program Tanked? Don’t Blame the Shark
When a leather-jacket clad
Water skiing lad
Wants to prove his manhood,
Obviously he should
show, making his mark
by jumping the shark.
And now those joyful Days have passed,
But I’m still here. I will outlast
these weaker species. That’s the score.
My kind outlasted dinosaurs.
and reef shark.
I’m whale shark
silky shark and
great white shark,
(Take your pick.)
also crested bullhead
(Give my memory a shake) Oh,
Right—I almost forgot mako.
Now, before you disembark
‘cause your species’ fate looks dark,
think how long there have been sharks
—makes your time look like a quark!

Thanks, Gerald, for this wonderful poem! Unfortunately, some of the species you cataloged are at risk…
During shark week, let’s fight for the sharks!
Aaaaeeeyyy! Love the reference to the Fonz! And this poem is even better when read aloud. Great job, Gerald!
