Can you read me one of your poems?

Dressed Crab








What do crabs wear when they're dressed?








Do we see them in suits and ties?








Do the ladies all wear ball gowns?








And carefully make up their eyes?
















Do they stand in front of a mirror








And reckon they look pretty neat?








Do they wear stiletto heels








with toes that pinch their feet?
















And when they're dressed to kill








Where do you think they go?








Are they off to a high-class party








Or a seat at a West End show?
















No, crabs have only one destination








A cold, hard fishmonger's slab -








That's the place you need to look








To spot the well-dressed crab.
