Shark Tank

Where dreams refresh to drown

Shark Tank is a risky place
where those with patents swim.
They hope to hear the sharks express
two hopeful words: “I’m in!”

It is a tank where countless try
to sell what they’ve conceived
with dreams that when they’ve done their best
the sharks will have believed.

But sadly most within the tank
are turned away dejected
because their grand amazing scheme
is heartlessly rejected.

“Just don’t give up,” I want to say.
“Don’t let five strangers win.
There’s bound to be a sixth one who
will someday say, “I’m in!”
