Why Are There Sharks? ...... [my Wife's Question; Creation Of Animals; Philosophy? ] - Poem by Bri Edwards
My wife asked me the other day
“Dear, why do sharks exist? ”
To try to answer that now,
all my brain’s power I must enlist.
But the other day I chose a coward’s answer
to the question, vexing.
I said “the sharks dispose of weak and injured prey”
while keeping muscles flexing.
NOW I believe that was a stupid answer,
though that’s some of what sharks do.
To the question “why do sharks exist”,
that is not at all an answer true.
[At least I don’t think it is.]
Some will say sharks exist
“because God was in a “MOOD” that day”.
Some will say “to provide thrills and chills
on movie screens”. Some will say.
Some will say “because when Mother Nature built them,
She was going through.....menopause”.
But after giving this question ALL the power
of my brain, I say “JUST BECAUSE”.
[That’s what I say.]
