Horseshoe Crab Poem Example

Ode to a horseshoe crab

I went down to the shore one day to sun and frolic and watch people play. There at a tidal pool a horseshoe crab did lay. With my foot I tapped his shell then came a shout out what the hell! 
Can't you tell I'm in deep contemplation about my untenable situation.
The tide is out and here I be awaiting my trip to eternity so let me be.
No,no I exclaimed let me attempt your life to regain 
I thank you sir I do indeed but you can not reverse what nature has decreed .
So return to your home and I to mine . Perhaps we would have  been friends  if we met in another time.  When at home and warming by your fire just remember a horseshoe crab is not a crab at all but related to a spider.
