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!
