A Stalking from Below…


They come from down deep,

Their call does certainly seep,

Through the hull where I do sleep,

Boy they sure do make these boats cheap…J


The do surround the boat,

Daring me to try to away float,

Fearless hunters are they, circling me while they gloat,

Hunger for me in their eyes I take note…


Fearful though I may be,

I realize they are the masters of the sea,

Glad today behind my boat, I do not ski,

I do understand them to a small degree,

No way will I enter the water, that is a definitive guarantee…

The picture is of dolphins but I am guessing you are referring to sharks!! It took me years to go back out into the ocean after I saw Jaws. I will now go out to swim and body surf, but I have never been really comfortable out there again. Sometimes ignorance is bliss.
Take care,
