A shark’s keen sense is in his nose -

A fact you’ll know, I would suppose.

    “A swimming nose” that’s what they say –

     A nose well used by night and day.


He’ll sniff the ocean far and wide

And after this he will decide

    The place to find a tempting meal -

    A fishy dish with shark appeal.


A shark’s good eyes are sharp and clear.

Look out you fish when one is near.

    He’ll track you down - no time to flee!

    There’s little safety in the sea!


His hearing’s good - watch out you prey!

He’ll suss you out from far away.

    Once heard, he’ll soon be on your track.

    For him, you’re just a tasty snack.


His teeth are razor sharp – beware!

A tasty victim he’ll ensnare.

    His sense of taste?  No time for taste –

     A shark’s meal disappears with haste!


Smart fish who understand these things

Will know full well what danger brings.

     Remembering well what they’ve been taught

     They’ll reach old age - as all fish ought!
