Got Crabs?
(a pantoum)

May I join you at your feast?
Your table looks set for four.
I admit, I’ll eat the beast
At least three, or maybe more.

Your table looks set for four
If folks had their way there’d be
At least three, or maybe more.
Crabs look mighty good ta me.

If folks had their way there’d be
dozens poundin’ on your door.
Crabs look mighty good ta me.
I bet folks could eat a score,

dozens poundin’ on your door.
That wine and bread, great with crab,
I bet folks could eat a score.
Food like this jus’ cain’t be bad!

That wine and bread, great with crab,
I admit, I’ll eat the beast
Food like this jus’ cain’t be bad!
May I join you at your feast?
