7-5-7's at the Dinner Table

Poor little Dungeness crab
Small sweet thing, you don’t
belong in a burrito

Surrounded by refried beans
and smothered in cheese
Oh, what an insult to you!

Rather, you should be intact
Red shell, spotted claws
Sitting next to hot butter

When tsoldtimer was here visiting we went to Traverse City, which looks out on Lake Michigan. While we wandered the beach we kept coming across crab legs...just one, not both, in all colors. Reading this made me think of that. Funny how we hang onto weird memories!

I think that the gulls had feasted on the crabs...maybe like how you feasted on them...sans refried beans and cheese. :)
