Hermit Crab Fought the Cat


On a blue Sunday
the hermit crab fought the cat
underneath the dinner table
a catnip day
a long day
everyone was in an uproar
how can this be?
and the large crab
like a baby lobster
held the cat in a constant scissors
like a tough-man contest
held at bay
just held at bay
and nobody said, 'give'
nobody won
and the cat with mustard on
his long whiskers
the crab licked the mustard
from the cat's face
an animal that crab
disgusting creature
with a devil feature
a bad day a catnip day
in Hell's kitchen
right underneath the table
the lobster thought the cat
would stop
but the cat began
to put up a fight
and to his delight
the crab said, 'give'
meaning he lost
and he ran to a hole
in the painted wall
underneath the duct tape
sore loser
the crab

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
