Crab Life

Crab Life

Look at you across the room
thinking can you make it.
your new victim in your sights
ready for a fight
you approach.

You know your role
known it long
learned it hard.
You are the crab 
who came out of the barrel
the one who made it.

But there can be only one,
only one success story
at a time.
So you know your role
you signed with your blood.

Instead of helping
the one left to come up
you got to work hard
to push him down
to drown.
