The idea of fins to the left, fins to the right*
Has made Chatham the town in the spot light.
The newscasters are lined up all in a row,
Waiting for the sharks to put on a show.
The ocean is banned for all who swim,
Lest someone lose a limb.
It is the cute little seals that the sharks seek,
Evidently it is their chubby physique.
Peter from NECN gave an updated report,
Shoes were optional, this close to port.
People were camping on the beach to catch a glimpse,
Obviously hard core shark seekers, not wimps.
The environmental police kept up appearances
During these unusual circumstances.
Who would have thought that a bunch of seals,
Would attract sharks in search of meals?
