Jumping the shark, or: “It’s not a tumor!”

A limerick

Across all the dark seas spread a rumor-
Of fierce shark with remarkable tumor;
Sailors knew to raise the alarm
At first sight of the swift-gliding arm,
While the priests aboard laughed at God's humor.

For Sadjeโ€™s weekly #WDYS prompt, she offered the photo below as inspiration for writers to produce art.

Let’s write poetry together!

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.

Ben Harper (b. 1969)

Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!
