Across TV and radio waves
an alarm rings over Massachusetts,
a great hoopla is unfolding,
a summer WARNING,
a fear of great white sharks
in east coastal waters.
A child asks if the sharks are fleeing
North, away from the B.P blunder
It makes one wonder.
Oh, and how dangerous are they?
Okay, on a rare occasion
a shark might bite a human,
but sharks really would rather not.
Shark attacks are so rare, in fact,
they are hardly worth mentioning.
And sharks never attack in interior
waters, nor do they ever bother folks
along the Northern or Southern boarders.
Wall Street sharks are more alarming,
with their toothy grins, their flippant
remarks and insatiable greed?
Wall Street sharks are predators
with advantages, educated and abusive,
predators who practice deceit to get their way,
widening the gap between the haves and
the have-nots which history tells us is never
a good idea. What is being done about them?
