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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

My favorite color is blue
Ring size -I don't know

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.

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

ring size 8.5
azure color

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.

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

Dave's Girl's Named Sandra Mcspark

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'

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!

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")!

Mark the Shark

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

Chiroptera Thanksgiving

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!

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

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!

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
