Sharks

November 1, 2019
Doug Foss, Hallendale Florida


Sharks have been sharks for millions of years.
So too, you know the expression,
If it quacks like a duck
It’s a duck,
Because considerable time has made it
Unmistakably duck.

200,000 years ago,
Like it was yesterday,
The homo sapien species emerged
From a single woman
In South East Africa.

60,000 years ago those homo sapiens
Learned to speak.

350 years ago those homo sapiens
Began to call themselves homo sapiens.

50 years ago
The first Arpanet message was sent,
Machine to machine
Man to man.

It was around that time
That Dick Cavette observed
“Death is nature’s way
Of telling you to slow down.”
