NaPoWriMo. Day 17. Poem 17. Lateral Thinking Crabs!

I’ve started thinking laterally
while walking into rooms like a crab.
No one thought it was weird.
The English see stranger things
Like Lions on European flags
people reading books on trains
and the sun proving its existence.

I see people walk like crabs without a single crack on their face.

They spend half their lives making their crab walk look effortless.

I bet those smug bastards have never made anyone smile for free.

That’s what I’d say while I walk past those crabs like a pink Lobster.
