Description: OK - "i" watched "Deadliest Catch" on Discovery Channel ~ the "reality" show about the brave fishermen that bring us our yummy crab!
A season that once yielded Tons of crab over months is now a 3-day season & it's a sleepless, treachorous 1/2 week! This may be a wake up call also for the new after-reality show..."There's too many darn people and not enough darn crab!"
So, a light-hearted piece from epiphany ; > }
Love, Peace, Joy!!!

Tiff, you've surpassed yourself, getting such a serious message across in such a light-hearted way, and I don't even know what the constant rhyme style is called, but I bet the Poetry Police have a name for it! LOL Excellent work Five Stars ***** Be Happy (why do I bother saying that in your case?) Graeme
This was a treat almost like a grownup nusery rhyme that I truly enjoyed! And I being a layman regarding poetry can't find one darn thing wrong with it lol I love the way you rhymed and does discovery channel have any idea what it series provoke in regards to poetry? LOL! This part... "Three days of fishing seals our Fate...It's the bowls of hell or Heaven's gate!" signifys the importance of these subjects quest because it is their livelyhood. Nice poem. `always write poetry, Cheryl.
Lol, I don't know why, but when I saw the title I didn't read it as King Krabby, but as King Krabby Poo...:P My minds playing tricks on me :)...I like this po-em it was quite amusing even if I don't like crab (well, it's not really that I don't like them, it's just that they make my throat inflate and that sucks :P)
This was funny and a nice ode to the old crabbers. Crab for dinner...mmmm...when, when, when...???
