I was walking aimlessly on the beach
And a crab sidled towards me
Started at me and giggled.
I knew I was not the most handsome
Yet to be laughed at by a crab . . .
It galled me to no end.
“It is not you, my Ami, but your kind
Y’all avoid me like a plague
But relish munching on my corpse
“You run after a pretty maid pampering her
But without batting an eyelid
Would batter, maim and rape her.
You fly about in your roaring machines
Knock down a pedestrian or two
Scoot off without bothering to check if they are alive “
” Watch out!”, I cried, espying a pro runner
Thundering down in expensive cleats
Creech! The talkative crab lay crushed
