If it was a Tigershark, it probably wasn't known to Lord Kendrick's
Middling friend, since Tigersharks are proper to the East Kingdom.

-- Alfredo
A dozen dancers   dart about,
Lords and ladies,   laughing, curtsy
And bow, bringing   palms forward but
Touching not together;  they twist apart,
Weaving their  wlonkful way.
Amidst the mead-sweet   merry melody,
Suddenly,   a sad sound:
The viol-da-gamba   vibrates vigorously,
An ominous ostinato   oo-doo, oo-doo, oo-doo.
Swiftly and surely,   shark happens.

Alfredo el Bufon
Elvegast, Windmaster's Hill, Atlantia

He hade vpon vche pece,
Wypped ful wel and wlonk;
The gayest into Grece,
The burne bede bryng his blonk.
Whyle the wlonkest wedes he warp on hymseluen --
His cote wyth the conysaunce of the clere werkez
Ennurned vpon veluet, vertuus stonez
Aboute beten and bounden, enbrauded semez,
And fayre furred withinne wyth fayre pelures --
3et laft he not the lace, the ladiez gifte,
That forgat not Gawayn for gode of hymseluen.
