A poem I wrote for my team when we were losing the game...

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

I really likes your poem. It is funny. In the end, I did not expect it to see Megalodon!

A friend of mine answered to The Ocean's Call with his poem:

Our name is Meglodon!

Bite! Let us bite!
Don't care about losing teeth,
As there are rows of them that never growing thin;
Sharp and shining,
why don't we just bite!

Yes, from time to time,
Out of jaw, games might fall,
But down under in the blue sea,
Our appetite gas no end,
It stretches to the horizon of
The northern lands!

No barriers of any kind
Can tame our sight, and
Halt our wake!


Let's bite and

Let's have the game be won!

'Cause our name is
