Perspective (poem by me)

While Noah was seeking refuge,
I was enjoying the deluge,
When you're a great white shark like me,
A flood just increases your territory.

Thanks to man's dirty dealings,
The rain gave us vaulted ceilings,
Within a forty-day time span,
The flood opened up our floor plan.

Each one of us hosted delicious feasts,
Until the floodwaters decreased,
We felt more than a little defeated,
When the excess water retreated.

Why it had to end, we may never understand,
But we heard that it worked out for Noah and his clan.

**"Perspective" is a fictional poem that seeks to show that world events 
can be seen as either a curse or a blessing based on the perspective. 
A flood that plagued mankind is a historical event recorded in Genesis 6-8. 
There is a bit of controversy surrounding whether or not sharks survived the 
flood. A great website named Got Questions addresses difficult questions 
using Scriptural support. Read their answer to whether or not sea creatures 
survived the flood here: http://www.gotquestions.org/fish-flood.html.
