A Shark is Lurking

There's a shark lurking in the soup they say
With sharp teeth ready to strike any day
Our pens remain our best weapons
No matter what the shark threatens
We will just write more to send him away

Halloween Law

A Wookiee, the Wolfman and Jaws
Broke all of the Halloween laws
The shark got first bite
And was not contrite
His friends crawled away on their paws

The Lark In The Dark

Sammy went out on a lark
sailing his boat in the dark
and while he got drunk
his little boat sunk
so his hangover went to the shark

Shark In The Soup

In my soup I could have sworn I saw a shark.
Swimming in roux that was rather dark.
But to my relief,
the fin a bay leaf.
Now I wear glasses before each meal I start.

SHARK TALE

shark tale


I once enjoyed a movie on a shark.
His bite much bigger than a dogs bark.
In the ocean JAWS scared more than fish.
A bite so deep no one could stitch.
With teeth so sharp, always leaving a mark..

Avoiding Amputation

I watched the sailfish spring from the sea

Had no wings, an enigma to me

     Why in flight did it embark?
     
     Pursuit by a great white shark

Its sail would soon be an amputee

Go Beryl

 Beryl, a beach girl of some girth,
Was paddling for all she was worth,
     Her face looked so stark
     Being chased by a shark,
As she battled to get out of the surf.

Bubble-icious

There once was a gray shark called "Trouble"
He ordered his armchair X- double
A mermaid swam by
She smiled and said "Hi!"
He replied with a fragrant bubble...

limerick joke V

Our ship’s sinking and circled by shark
So a lawyer jumped off of our ark
The sharks swam away 
And observers will say
Professional courtesy is their trademark

Swish

I missed the toilet in the dark,
I'm always deadly as a shark,
I miscalculated -
math is overrated...
think basketball: Shoot with an arc.

ENEMIES AT PEACE (Worst Poem Ever)

A shark and a dolphin were seen
with a very small space in-between.
They were both in their stride
as they swam side-by-side 
it was a highly unlikely scene!

Fast Food

There was a young man from North Park,
Who would swim near the beach after dark.
The move of the ocean
Always set him in motion,
Until the night he became dinner for a shark

Seaman name Seamour

There once was a seaman named Seymour
Who dived thirty feet down the ocean floor
When he spotted a great white shark 
He swam up to the top like a rocket spark
And left the sea for the mountains of Lenoir

Fishing in the dark

I told you we shouldn't fish in the dark,
But you refused, we are food for the shark,
Now that you are full of drink,
Sure we are going to sink,
I feel like cutting your neck stupid Mark.

Know your name-droppers

Untrue, harmless, "I phoned Schwarzenegger..."
True, harmless boast: "I love my Srinagar.” 
Surreal:  "The shark killed me."
Dubious: “FBI? John, it’s me”
True, untrue, dubious— or just a swagger?

I Wish I Were a Skate

I wish I were a swimming skate
I’d swim in schools; that would be great!
I would sit in class
Between shark and bass
Then play hooky and take debate

Backdoor

I was surfing the Banzai Pipe
When the Backdoor opened like hype
A shark lurking there
Missed me by an hair
But my shorts sure needed a wipe! 

 Some say the Hawaiian island of O'ahu got its name
from the last words of a surfer who encountered a shark:
"Oh!  AH! oo")!

About To Embark

About To Embark

Remembered when we were about to embark,
On a cruise but came up with a question mark;
Go which way?
How much pay?
My wallet had being eaten up by a big shark.

The boozy buccaneer


A reckless young pirate named Greg
Drank whisky straight out of a keg.
He cried 'Look at me!'
In shark-ridden sea;
That drink cost an arm and a leg!

August Bank Holiday

One thing about the Great White Shark
Its size is bigger than its bark
But when its mouth
Is heading South
You'll wish it stayed on Noah's Ark!

Great White Shark

Has three thousand jagged teeth to kill prey
Smells blood in the water three thousand miles away
Great white’s keen smell
Sniffs human as well
This salty sweet fragrance can brighten his day

When Fudd Went to Mud


Elmer Fudd chose one day on a lark

to go looking through mudIn the dark,

he got swept to the sea.

Most unfortunately,

he found naught but the bite of a shark!

Shark in the Soup

Amazed with all in soup made curious, sets a fiery spark fast and furious Shark set its mark on a group; developed spasmodic croup, left most combative and delirious. 12/27/2018 Poetry Contest: Shark in the Soup Sponsored by: Anthony Slausin

Pothole State Park

Honolulu's Pothole State Park
Is a scary place after dark
With potholes so deep
Anything could creep
From octopus to Great White Shark!

SHARK IN THE SOUP

His fin is at play in my soup..Afraid!
He’ll nibble my fingers and bod with blade!
Ordered the big bowl —
I’ve no self-control.
The waiter will consider check unpaid.
