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.
