Frilled Shark, a terrible poem

Come with me
To the sea
Where it’s very cold
And wet
And blue
And also deep, fathomless, really dark, dark, black, maybe deep blue, some people say it’s green, others with no color perception call the water purple, and deep
Oh, and it’s cold
So
That is why
I’d die
So high
If I were
A frilled shark

Also I’d die because they carry their babies for 3.5 years.

    The problem with being a pregnant shark is that you then have to give birth to sharks. That can’t be pleasant.

      😀 That was my thought about being pregnant with an elephant!

    Oh no no no no. That’s too long. Please tell me that they’re done parenting as soon as they plop the babies out?

              If YOU want it too, I’ll get the rest from my neighbor (looks like the image got cut off) and send it your way. 🙂
