There lies the wounded old shark.
Blood still dripping from its large teeth.
The beast has been around a long time and wreaked much damage.
But the old thing is on its last legs now.
One last fight before the reserve in New York beckons.
But its mate lies fatally wounded too.
Might the shark finish him off as one final act of mercy, even to save her own skin.
The reef fish can be cruel at times, though they have largely been like pussy cats to the old shark.
But they are not reef fish, it seems but pirahnas!
And they have apparantly savaged the shark's old mate.
Oh hell! what if they go for the wounded old shark herself. Her battles have left blood gushing from the gills, the fins, the tail, all over.
The old shark lies wounded and vulnerable.
But will they?
