I swim through the Oceans, never stopping, sneaking up on my prey in the dark;
Screams travel from the beach, through the waves echoing “Help, it’s a Great White Shark”.
I glide through the water with ease, never sleeping as I patrol the shores;
We are hunted to near extinction, mainly because of some old film called “Jaws”.
I will never die from Cancer, to disease I am immune;
Thousands of my kind are caught daily in fishing nets, pulled from the Oceans way to soon.
Lions rule the plains, but in the Ocean I am king, I wear the crown;
But still humans hunt us, cut off our fins, before throwing us back, as we sink to the depths and drown.
My species has been on this planet since the dawn of the dinosaurs, we were part on Gods original master plan;
But after 65 million years of evolution, we are on the brink of extinction, all because of man.
My teeth can cut through bone, my eyes never blink, as they roll with the color of the night;
The Oceans are my playground, in the Seas I am top of the food chain. Who am I? I am natures Great White.
