parody of daffodils Poem by lucy arron


A parody of daffodils

I wander'd lonely as a shark,
That roams the ocean deep and wide,
When all at once I saw a shoal,
Of little fishes trying to hide,
Around the rocks, beneath the reef,
Quivering with fear as they saw my teeth.

Continuous as the stars that shine,
Reflecting on the ocean’s swell,
They darted from their hiding place,
I rushed amongst them, jaws like hell,
And sent them to their watery graves,
Whilst above me rolled the waves.

    How about 'Quivering at my fearful teeth' for easier scansion? and
    'Whilst all above me rolled the waves'? (Report) Reply
