Rock Lobster

Rock Lobster

She came to work on Halloween
dressed as a giant red lobster,
with claws and everything.
She just sauntered in, and sat in her swivel chair,
and began to log into her computer,
like it was a perfectly normal thing to do.

Her antennae scraped against the door jams,
She ate melted butter and herbs for lunch,
with a few tablespoons of bread crumbs.

They said she looked delicious after that.
So she kept her claws up,
and watched for the bibs and the shell crackers.

What a lovely crustacean was she.
It was a shame,
when that evening she walked out in all her
red, shelled, sea faring glory,
and came back the next day,
just a girl.
