A Minor Mishap

Here was a shark of TREMENDOUS great size,

As long as a cruise ship and almost as wide!

Its head was so massive, and full of large teeth,

on the top, and the bottom, and sides, and beneath!

Being still, at this moment, just might have been prudent,

And might have saved Dave from the shark/eel/mutant.

But Dave was pounding and thrashing at this watery stuff,

And didn't notice the shark thing quite soon enough.

It slithered so smoothly right up to poor Dave,

bit down on his foot and swam on with a wave.

Dave screamed for a second but not for much longer,

because down the shark went, and they were both underwater.

The End
