Poseidon is hungry.

By: Jacob T.

Poseidon, The Water Lord was hungry. Everyday he inhaled and every night he exhaled, making the water to go up and down in tides. But Poseidon was not appeased by merely breathing in and out, he wanted food. One night when people were innocently swimming, he started gulping in vast amounts of water. The water under the surface of the ocean began to go back so fast that the people on shore couldnĘt swim forward! They were being dragged inexorably to PoseidonĘs waiting mouth. That is why, whenever a riptide occurs, you know that Poseidon is hungry.
