Open Wide Mr. Shark...



                                                         About the Teeth of Sharks

                                                                    John Ciardi

The thing about a shark is - teeth,
One row above, one row beneath.


Now take a close look. Do you find
It has another row behind?


Still closer - here, I'll hold your hat:
Has it a third row behind that?


Now look in and .... Look out? Oh my,
I'll never know now! Well goodbye.









And all the sharks smiled at their cousin's good luck....




Have a great day everyone!  Thanks for dropping by.
