Napowrimo #4: The Great White Shark

The Great White Shark

Carcharodon carcharias
is sadly much maligned;
they live on cheese and use their teeth
to help remove the rind.*

*Since in the Pacific
cheddar can be hard to find,
they sometimes snack on swimmers.
But I daresay no-one minds.

OK, I googled Edward Bond and I think it’s fair to say I don’t get the reference…

Glad you like the pome though :)

Silly me, I meant Lear.

The mix-up is enlightening: Edward Lear wrote nonsense verse, Edward Bond wrote Lear, an absurdist revision of Shakespeare’s play.

Bury me now.
