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
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
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

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.
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..
FIRST LIMERICK EVER..
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
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.
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...
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
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.
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
ring size 8.5
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!
Enter: My Worst Poem Ever
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.
My favorite color is blue
Ring size -I don't know
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.
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 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

Dave's nuts 'bout his girlfriend, Sandra McSpark
She doesn't bite much, but Man! - Can she bark!
She's got the sexiest growls
From voluptuous jowels
Sandra's no dog ~ She's a silver 'land shark'
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")!
Honolulu's Pothole State Park
Is a scary place after dark
With potholes so deep
Anything could creep
From octopus to 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
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!

There once was a gambler named Mark
At cards he was somewhat a shark
he missed his cue
lost his juju
Now he sleeps in a public park
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!
It was crowded on Noah's Ark
So bats learnt to fly in the dark
Because of the flood
They had to drink blood
On Halloween, they feast like shark!
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.
