Brave little Crab

Find me basking
In the moon
While I nurture my little ones
In our sheltered lagoon

I may seem hard on the outside
But please don’t mis-take
My shell is just a shield
For my inside, soft as cake

Yeah, I walk with a barrier
But believe me, I’m not dense
For one to know my true beauty
Must speak politely to commence

Romantically mysterious
Keen to tradition
Let me shine how much you’re valued
And illuminate intuition

Sentiment glows bright
In my crustacean eyes
If you’re close to my heart
I will hold you with ties

In cancerian claws you are safe
From the dangerous road that life paves
Etched in my heart you can see
“Defender of Love” engraved
Let me show you my stuff
In the land of the free, and home of the brave
