Sharks In Shoes

Great white shark warning off California

Coast Guard Issues Shark Warning for Tri-State Waters -- The warning is for the waters from New Jersey to Maine

Great white sharks have been sighted off both coasts.
That’s okay. Everyone can go swimming
in the Gulf of Mexico. Oh, wait. No.

Maybe this is the start: Sharks off both coasts.
Maybe the next step will be rains of sharks.
Hungry sharks in Nike shoes that rain down
then chase down and eat people who are shocked
to see sharks in shoes ripping off their arms.

I have never seen a shark wearing shoes
and I hope I never see one. I bet
the creatures in the Gulf of Mexico
never saw the water turn black and hoped
they’d never see it. But they’re seeing it.

The ghost of Molly Malone is singing
about sharks in shoes, Alive-alive-oh!
Life becomes survival of the fleetest.
