Lobster Flight

Lobster Flight

A Chapter by Dave Brown



With the weather so warm

This early in spring

It was off to the beach

For an afternoon fling


Looking forward to our picnic 

When a large lobster ran by on the fly

Showing exceptional eight-legged haste

A sight that put apple pie in my eye


First there was one

And then were three

And then many more

All hurrying straight out to sea


They had escaped from the restaurant

Just cross the street

With the sous-chef in hot pursuit

Who was facing a lobster defeat


To remark that there’d be a menu change

One passing lobster slowed to a brief walk

Saying, the restaurant would make arrangements

I was quite surprised to hear a lobster talk
