What if on a trip to the sea, a shark tried to take a bite out of me?

I’m thankful that his teeth missed, but if left me just a little pissed!

Who does he think he is, my life it’s mine not his.

How dare he try to take it away, I hope he just wanted to play.

The swimmers that were in the sea, they cleared out after his swipe at me.

He left in a bit of a rush, but had caused a heck of a fuss.

Now I’m out here all alone, guess it’s time to pack up and go home.

His attempt to drive me away, has worked but just for today.

Next time I head to the sea, I’ll try to bring shark repellant with me!
