A silent enemy hiding in the deep blue waters of the ocean
Large and harmless to the eye,
Just waiting to devour prey like an insatiable hunter.
With lightening speed,
The shark is upon its prey
Sharp teeth ripping the trapped enemy to pieces.
Relishing its bloody victory,
It again vanishes,
Into the ocean's bottomless depths.
