“Be careful in these waters.”
“I didn’t think there was anything more dangerous than Seaking in here.”
“Well, they say there’s a terrible shark prowling these waters.
“No kidding? A Sharpedo?”
“Worse. They call it the Metapod Shark.”
“… Okay, you’re just messing with me aren’t–”
The boat burst apart in two and collapsed as a green object shot up through it like a missile. It was…
Cutting through the waters, shell as hard as steel,
Bashing, crashing, smashing stuff, no one knows its deal!
Some say the creation of some mad scientist or such,
A Metapod mixed with a shark who loves to smash so much!
Others say the shark’s a ghost of a Metapod once drowned,
It dropped into the ocean and haunts ’til its body’s found!
Over time these rumors spread and mixed and matched you see,
Now many say that Metapod Shark’s spirit is not free,
The scientist drowned Metapod in an attempt to make a shark,
Now it’s here but haunting and its body’s lost in dark.
Though others say the Metapod Shark has a simpler origin,
One day someone just turned Metapod so its nose was now a fin!
Surfing the water, carving through boats,
Feared by all, some patrol moats!
Chases fish, grows a beard,
By everyone it’s loved and feared!
Plays tennis on weekends, munches on pears,
Supports its local library, cannot use chairs!
Many people think that it’s a big load,
And honestly, what the hex was this ode??
