Shark Bait - Poem by Professor Poetry Hound

I attended my brother-in-law’s church last week and they
had this enormous aquarium behind the pulpit. The pastor
pointed out the sharks and talked about how they
represented the devil.

Then on cue, as the choir sang some crescendo-y type
thing, church employees on ladders dropped raw meat
into the tank and the sharks went crazy tearing it apart.

Some of the congregants were visibly shaken by the
spectacle, kids were crying, and one elderly lady even
threw up.

But I thought the demonstration was fantastic. It really
made the point that we have to stay away from the
ocean of temptation, otherwise Jesus will stand on a
ladder and, despite our cries for mercy, dropp us into a
shark tank.

    isn't there a story in the Old Testament in which the tour guides at Sea World threw this guy Daniel in a Shark Tank?
