Poets.org has compiled some shark poems in honor of the best of all weeks, Shark Week!
I am pretty obsessed with this idea of Shark Week. It started as a special on the Discovery Channel in 1987 and now it’s this pop culture phenomenon where other networks and entities are getting in on the shark fun. I read an article that said, “Shark week is back!” as if we had all been waiting, breathlessly for more trivial, yet important information about sharks and their general habits.
Why does something like Shark Week exist? Speculate in the comments.
