The Poetry of Brian Langley  

The inspiration for this poem came from a friend who is terrified of "things"
that are in the sea.   Swimming in the ocean is not an option for her


A Dangerous Place

There's jelly fishes 'neath the waves,
Moray eels that live in caves.
Poisonous cone shells here and there
And sharks I'm told are everywhere.
There's many other nasties too,
Just waiting there for me and you.
