Manhattan Beach Shark Attack

In a scene reminiscent of Crocodile Dundee in a kangaroo dress
Shooting back a hunters hunting roos to their aim repress
A fisherman hooked a Great White Shark off the Manhattan Beach pier
The shark did not throw up his fins in fear
But fought but could not break the angler’s gear
In anger headed for some swimmers near
A quick bite to the unsuspecting swimmer’s thigh
Quick aid by surfers to save this bitten guy
And the shark after seeing the attack
Cut his line not wanting another bite to attract
After swimming in anger near shore that quickly closed the beach
 Our angered shark headed out to the deep beyond any hooks’ reach
The moral to this tale that did not end on a tragic note
If you are to fish for sharks, don’t do it from a pier, use a boat
Swimming and fishing in the water near to each other is a mistake
Especially when Great Whites are roaming in the ocean wake
