The Ocean's Call

Once upon a time, you swung like a giant,

as if there was no one else by your sides.

The waves you stirred up made tsunamis shy;

The cheering you roared out made tigers cried.

As an ocean I admire, in you

The vigor that once no one could fight.

What a drive! What a guy!

But now! Tell me.

Where do you hide?

My world without you is a dead bored life.

Pizzas sink in a deep trench, ice creams drift in a dark nowhere, and movie stars sob in a lonely crack...

Oh! Shark! What about come alive?

Grin again your shining teeth and make the sun can only envy!

Open again your mighty jaw and let the sky stare with only stun!

Listen! Shark-mate...

My tummy is full of goodies after all;

And I need you be a giant to devour them all!

And please--

Don't forget your name is

Meglodon!
