The Race (3 Word Challenge)


3 Word Challenge: Josie, Shark, Laugh
Challenge words selected by Erin L.


Josie took her pail down to the ocean,
as a seagull flew by, causing commotion.

“Everyone run! Everyone flee!
Mr. Shark’s coming! He’s right behind me!”

Everyone panicked. Everyone worried.
“Shark’s on the way! Everyone hurry!” 
They packed their towels, and umbrellas, too.
Josie just watched, unsure what to do.

She decided to ask why anyone cared –
If Shark’s in the ocean, they shouldn’t be scared!

“Mr. Seagull! Can’t we stay on the sand?
Sharks live in water; they can’t come on land!”

“You are quite right,” Seagull laughed as he said,
Mr. Shark gives us nothing to dread!”

“We’re not afraid of Mr. Shark, you see!
But we are racing him…in the Ocean Grand Prix!”

**Send me any three (clean!) words, and I'll create a poem, short story or snippet with your words!**
