Basking Shark

Basking Shark

Sure, Great Whites
Can give all fright
But the contrast is stark
When you compare
Their meaty fare
To the large Basking Shark’s

Our bigger mouths
Are not about
Having really sharp teeth
We open wide
So plankton might
Get trapped just as we breathe

A spectacle
We’re so gentle
You could swim by my side
It looks so cool
Yet so useful
When my mouth opens wide

For we move slow
But that is so
We can save energy
As Basking Sharks
Perform the art
Of catching the tiny!
