(27 November 1878 - 1 February 1948 / Nadia, West Bengal / India)

Never Trust A Lobster

Never trust a lobster,
He may have a charming smile
But underneath he's ruthless
And saves everything to file.

The sea and sand and sunshine
Will have you feeling good
And trusting everybody -
But are you sure you should?

Prawns and shrimps keep secrets,
Mermaids never tell
But lobsters love to gossip
(And they make things up as well) .

Crabs give you sidewise glances
And might seem quite aloof
But you can trust them at a pinch,
They very seldom goof

But never trust a lobster.
I did - now look at me
In Davy Jones's locker
At the bottom of the sea.
