The young man from Dover

There was a young man lived in Dover
And he was the son of a rover
He fell into the sea
Cause clumsy was he
A shark came and it was all over.

    I'm a bit on the clumsy side myself, so I guess I should stay away from the ocean. I'd hate to meet a shark! Ha! Ha! Great limerick, Peter! Congrats on your win! Love, Kim
